Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson released this weird and wonderful music video for his song Dream For Dreaming.
In it, a puppet sings a melancholy song about a break up inside of his dingy inner-city apartment. The poor puppet is having a tough time and clearly misses his old partner. At first, the video is a bit weird, comical and surreal. But as the video goes on, you can’t help but feel really sorry for the puppet. The mood changes and it starts to feel like you’re watching a real person struggling with loneliness.
The video walks the line between being totally comical and pretty serious. It’s really interesting to watch, as the singer blends elements of drama and comedy in an interesting and unique way. The puppet mimes Patrick’s vocals perfectly, which adds to the effect. The singer is known for making one-of-a-kind music videos and this one definitely follows that trend. The way he makes music is innovative as well, as he often uses unusual things as instruments. In one of his songs, he even used a bicycle as an instrument. Keep an eye on this brilliant and talented artist.
