Neko Case Music Video for "People Got a Lotta Nerve" from Middle Cyclone

Music Video: Neko Case, "People Got a Lotta Nerve"

Neko Case's "People Got a Lotta Nerve," from her album Middle Cyclone, is a catchy — if slightly eerie — song that imagines caged animals taking revenge on those who keep them that way. So it's only appropriate that the music video that accompanies the song would have the same dreamy but creepy imagery.

In this little animated gem, a bored redheaded girl gets sucked away from the drudgery of knitting and transported into a fantastical world where dozens of children jump rope on the backs of elephants and brush a tiger's mane. But when she tries to capture one of the primates for her own, the animals revolt and return her to the belly of a whale. It's a weird fantasy, sure, but it's the sort of thing I imagine coming out of Case's brain on a regular basis. Plus, seeing this animated Neko-esque girl makes me think of that time she was on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which still makes me giggle a little. To check out the video,

I love videos like this that bring the songs to life. This song is in heavy rotation on the ipod. Have you seen Death Cab's video for Grapevine Fires? Another great animated one.
