“Somewhere in the eternity of outer space, Pharrell, Miku, and the composer of the song, Livetune, are describing my film ‘Jellyfish Eyes’ to a seemingly heartless robot audience. Somehow the film’s message manages to reach the robots emotionally and cross the boundaries of time and space.”
Thus says Takashi Murakami about his music video for song “Last Night, Good Night (Re:Dialed),” remixed by Pharrell Williams and staring “virtual idol” Hatsune Miku, who has a huge following in Japan. The track is the theme song for Murakami’s film “Jellyfish Eyes,” an unanimated film currently on a nationwide tour through major art institutions across the country. Pharrell, who remixed the song via livetune, said that seeing the video come together (animated by Murakami) was incredible. “Takashi’s use of colors and characters really speaks to me and allows me to get lost in the many layers of his paintings.”
There’s also a little Pharrell in the music video too, complete with the Arby’s hat. Check out the video, premiered by The Creator’s Project, below.
