What the hell happened to Akron/Family with their latest disc, S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT? The album itself is quite enough of a departure from the band’s previous works, but the videos are really something else. This new video for “Silly Bears” is a psychedelic stop-motion affair through outerspace, starring stuffed bears — and lots of them (well, actually, it’s the same one, I think, repeated over and over again). What possessed the band to compose a song about silly bears and then led them to decide that showing this bear on a Rubik’s Cube-like painted cardboard surface would be a good idea?!!! I am ever so confounded. However, that does not mean the video is not entertaining, because it is, in a Lite Brite, The Science Of Sleep kind of way.
