This New Bonnie Prince Billy Video is Really Dark

+

Will Oldham is no stranger to weird animated videos (who else remembers this extremely odd and kind of gross clip from way back in 2007?), so this latest clip for his Bonnie “Prince” Billy project fits right in with his proclivity for very particular visuals. A rabbit stars in the video for “Time to Be Clear,” from last year’s Wolfroy Goes to Town, and unsurprisingly he’s a rabbit with problems. Created by Dustin Glick, Mike Ayers, and Nicklaus Deyring, the clip stars a rabbit  in deep with some loan sharks (which are actually wolves), when he meets the girl of his dreams, only to have her get terminally ill on him. For a while, the video looks like it’ll be the same kind of sad as the beginning of Up, but of course, it eventually gets much worse than that. Is there anyone out there who can explain why Will Oldham doesn’t have a show on Adult Swim yet?
