The Pinker Tones Build and Destroy "Tokyo" in a Music Video
Weary travelers of the world, the Pinker Tones know how you feel.
The road to madness comes easy when you’re cooped up in a hotel room in a city you’d rather not be in. For Mister Furia, the solution to being trapped in LA is building a micro version of a far more desirable destination, where you can find love at the end of a conversation about a subway map; Tokyo.
In the video for “Tokyo,” Furia embarks on a schizophrenic origami project, forging entire Tokyo neighborhoods from the items in his hotel room. His little photo cutout avatar traverses the linoleum streets with exactly four awe-struck expressions before finding a beautiful stranger and shifting the entire focus of his doll world.
Before you know it Furia’s little experiment, a product of loneliness and an immense aptitude for arts and crafts, turns on him. Cardboard Furia finds love and never looks back. A classic Frankenstein-esque tale told through the magic of stop motion. You might remember seeing them use this technique before.
