Music Video: Pumping On Your Stereo, Supergrass

Puppetry as subversive performance art may have seemed silly in Being John Malkovich, but with this new video, puppets may become the new cartoons. The Brit-Pop band had Jim Henson's Creature Shop build 15-ft., Sesame Street-colored bodies for the members to rest (and bounce) their tiny heads. Directed by Hammer and Tongs, the video is much more daring, and fun, than Sisqo's The Thong Song.
