Featuring an animated Juicy J, the music video for Keys N Krates latest album track ‘Original Classic’ is nothing short of entertaining with its wonderfully absurd plot. Also added into this animated storyline is the actual band as well as other featured acts on this track: Chip and Marbl. The Original Classic album was released via Last Gang Records last year and since then the band has been receiving much-deserved appreciation for their out-of-the-box sound.

The concept was visualized by quirky animator Bird Peterson who had the idea of an old-fashioned animation calling to mind early ‘60s breakfast commercials. Using the concept of a sugar-driven youth, Keys N Krates go on an adventure sharing their music with their peers in Canada. The video concludes with the band getting arrested by authorities for poisoning young minds with their “distracting” music. 


Overall the video is just good old fun, the band shared they burst with amusement and delight when Bird pitched the concept to them. A band that can show a more adventurous side production-wise and can still maintain a sense of humour is one that has more great ideas brewing.
