This New Animated Video for Cake's "Long Time" Is Pretty Freaking Dark

Categories: Video

Sad monkey.
​You're forgiven for thinking that an animated music video -- even one from such a head-in-the-shitty-real-world kind of band as Sacramento's Cake -- will be at least a little cartoony. That drawn characters will cause the plot to resolve in a fantastical way. After all, Gorillaz have taught us to expect psychedelic miracle videos, haven't they? Well, check out this brand-new video for Cake's "Long Time," off the new album Showroom of Compassion. It's a well-done animated clip featuring the adventures of a man and his bouncy little monkey. It's a good song and an interesting video with a surprising ending. Just don't expect any psychedelic miracles.

This clip for "Long Time" debuted on MTV yesterday:
