Radiohead Reveal ‘Daydreaming’ Short Film Contest Winner — Watch

The winning clip is a colorful and animated video created by artist Affinitia.


Radiohead has finally announced the winner of their fan-made short film contest. Back in July, the English rock band asked fans to submit a vignette using a new one-minute version of their song “Daydreaming,” tied to the release of their album “A Mood Shaped Pool.”

The group shared the winning clip, a trippy and colorful animated video created by Tim Urlacher (who goes by the name Affinitia), on their Instagram account writing: “Finally, the winner of the vignette competition, thank you to everyone who took part. Our favorite is from Affinitia.”

Tom Yorke even called the vignette “extraordinary” on Twitter.
