Watch: How Many Famous Film Couples Can You Spot in Cruisr's New Animated Music Video?

The new animated music video by the band Cruisr for their song “All Over” highlights some of your favorite onscreen couples from a diverse range of films, including “The Wizard of Oz,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Taxi Driver,” “Pulp Fiction,” “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Annie Hall.” Although most of them aren’t exactly romantic (Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling, for instance), each pairing has an intense, complicated relationship, and the video cleverly and seamlessly morphs from one animated character to the next — blink, and you’ll miss James Bond, Rocky or the teen vampires from “Let the Right One In.”

The video’s creator and director Chris Carbone explains his creative process on his web site. He wrote:

“The concept was born out of the central theme of the track – the inexplicable but relatable allure of getting your heart stomped on in all the right ways. The clever simplicity of the lyrics combined with the instantly catchy rhythm of the song called for a narrative that could breeze by just as effortlessly. So I decided to visualize the story through notable film romances – from the iconic to the obscure – represented through colorful animated vignettes. A lot of the fun came in finding the right balance of love and chaos to represent such a volatile relationship. Echoing the idea of constantly cycling back and forth between these two extremes, I decided to have each section seamlessly transition into the next without any cuts.”
