Thistle: awesome music video by Hundred Waters

The Pinata’s doom is a cruel metaphor for determinism. It’s pretty much a Christ-figure for the cruelty of children; a sacrifice consecrated to violence and gluttony by millions of nine-year-olds at birthdays across the planet. Florida four-piece Hundred Waters’s video for the single Thistle celebrates the liberation of the beast and its subsequent existential meandering. Directed by Barcelona-based Martin Allais, Thistle employs stop-motion animation and brittle card to create a tactile video that explores freedom and pain.
