Number One by Playgroup

I’ve had this video kicking around my computers for six or seven years at the very least. At the time I picked it up, computer motion capture hadn’t hit Hollywood and, besides hair, character movement was a Big Thing in computer animation and MMORPGs.

The computer animation itself is excellent, but what really stands out is the direction; throughout the video you’ll see signature dance moves you recognize immediately.

Playgroup is a British ‘electroclash‘ band and the tune Number One was released in 2001. Electroclash is a mashup of techno, punk, and synthpop that gained popularity in the late 90’s.
