Giant and creepy

Can I say I live in the wrong city!! This is a cool site I found while searching for puppet pictures. This giant puppet performance in Nantes, France, looks unbelievable!! Be sure to go through each page and view the video of this extraordinary event that winds its way through the streets in this ellaborate parade of a giant elephant and a girl. Wow!
Also, here is a eevil video that most of you have seen but what can I say...i'm nearsighted. Interpol's video "evil" is just creepy and strange with its gyrating puppet. It was done by Colonel Blimp director, Charlie White. He is known for his creepy puppet videos like his 'Understanding Joshua' series. While you are visiting the Colonel check out the puppet styling video for Dizzee Rascal by Dougal Wilson. It is great to see directors going back to old school tech and not just latching onto the CG hype. And with the success of Wallace and Gromit and Corpse Bride, there seems to be a ctrl + z trend to this high tech takeover.

Ahh, yes. Misuzu sent the link of the giant puppet girl to my family. Neat story line to go along with it.
