NEW SPIKE JONZE THING LOOKS AWESOME AND WEIRD

02.17.10 8 years ago 9 Comments

Much as I like Spike Jonze’s movies, I like his weird short videos even more (see also: the short he did in which Kanye West carves a strange little man out of his belly).  These pictures come from Higglety Pigglety Pop or There Must be More to Life (an adaptation of a Maurice Sendak book), a 23-minute short Jonze produced which will be attached to the blu-Ray of Where the Wild Things Are.  It was created by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski and features the voices of Meryl Streep, Forest Whitaker and Jonze.

The plot is that Meryl Streep is a shaggy dog, and she wants to become the star of the Mother Goose theater.  I don’t really know what that means, but I know it’s got talking animals dressed like humans.  Honestly, I’d take cyanide capsules if a dog in a suit told me to.  I’d assassinate the president if Cody the Dog Clerk said so.
