My Morning Jacket: Outta My System

A journey through the middle of the earth and into space.

Published on Aug 07, 2012

Editor's Pick

Honey Badger's James Frost directs the newest video for My Morning Jacket's "Outta My System," a psychedelic trip that could be a grown up "Magic School Bus" of sorts.

The band's frontman, Jim James, clad in white furry boots, jumps down a rabbit hole to turn an analog music video into an animated journey through a pretty unique outer space, where Zach Galifianakis makes an appearance as an evil wizard who sports a cape and hat over a pullover sweater and cargo pants.

Animation director Michael Gillette worked on the environments, which editor Nicholas Wayman Harris, along with Frost, threaded together into a narrative. Animation is by Grant Kolton, who spent a mammoth three months working on the video.
