Aesop Rock and Blockhead Share Animated Video "All The Smartest People"

Aesop Rock and Blockhead Share Animated Video "All The Smartest People"

Aesop Rock and Blockhead have released animated visuals for his song, "All The Smartest People,” a standout track from their 2021 project, Garbology.

The intensely creative video strings together almost 1500 illustrated stills of Aesop Rock delivering his verses, all illustrated by Aesop himself. The illustrations are accompanied by clues and notes throughout.

“I heard a calling that said ‘you should draw 1,500 selfies,’ and I answered that call on some ‘hold my Bubly,’" Aesop said. "I had been messing around with some short animations and decided to take a crack at something a little longer. The process made my eyes hurt, and now your eyes can hurt too. Some days it felt therapeutic, but a lot of days I was pretty over it. I would get about 6 seconds a day on average. Lots of repetition. Ultimately I’m glad I was patient enough to see it through – and thankful for those around me with the ‘keep going!’ attitude. This song is one of my favorites off the Garbology project. It’s fun when these weird ones work out.”
