Charlotte band Your Fuzzy Friends is in the midst of releasing a series of music videos the first of which features a couple of dancing mustaches. The purveyors of said `staches received five dollars for their trouble. That's the hitch. The funny, electro-pop band, which consists of puppet master Lee Grutman and a series of literally stuffed fuzzy friends, teamed with "Shutter16 Magazine" to recruit folks through the fiverr.com/ website where artists post what they're willing to do (and film) for a measly five bucks. Christopher Olson of Springfield, Missouri, for instance advertised his willingness to make a mustache dance to any song the buyer wanted him to. You can watch the video here.
The latest installment - released today - pairs Your Fuzzy Friends' rather beautiful synth-pop song "Mathletes" with equally stunning anime. You can view that one above.
It all sounds a bit confusing until you watch the videos. The first, for YFF's "Don't Touch My Mustache," is pretty self-explanatory. For the second video for the less G-rated song "Banana Hammock" a Turkish video editor strung some very strange footage of nearly nude, not svelte men running around the woods in animal masks and what very well could be the after hours dance party at a convention for sports mascots, birthday party entertainers, occasional Flaming Lips' employees and other people who run around dancing in full animal costumes. You can check that one out here.
