Neko Case "People Got A Lotta Nerve"

  • Animated girl vs. nature tale illustrated by Julie Morstad

  • Tags:

    A quick scan through Neko Case's always-entertaining Twitter feed shows that the singer is a big fan of animals. More proof is found in this video for "People Got A Lotta Nerve," a track from 2009's Middle Cyclone. Yes, it's ancient by internet standards, but it's new to us and the animation by Canadian illustrator Julie Morstad is, well, perfect. Neko's empathy for man-eating animals shines in the lyrics — “You know they call them ‘killer’ whales / but you seemed surprised when it pinned you down to the bottom of the tank” — as well as in the video, which finds a girl (a young Neko?) inside the belly of an orca until she’s shot out of its blowhole onto a flying greyhound. Our protragnist's wild adventure continues until the end when she finds herself back inside the sea beast at the end. A victory scored for animalia. Watch above.
