Integrated creative studio Mixtape Club recently produced the music video for “Walkin’ My Cat Named Dog,” this week’s post for They Might Be Giant’s year-long Dial-A-Song music project. The track will also be included on the band’s kids album which is looking at a fall release.
With a “cast” of Mixtape Club’s own pets, the video is a playful retro-styled animation that compliments the carefree summertime vibe of the song, originally recorded by Norma Tanega, which delighted the pop airwaves in 1966.
Mixtape Club, led by executive creative director Chris Lenox Smith, drew visual inspiration from classic 1960’s artists and designers, including seminal author/illustrator M. Sasek. The team illustrated, animated, and textured the film using the Adobe Creative Suite and Flash.
