Art Spiegelman book gets its own HD trailer

Art Spiegelman’s collection of sketchbooks, titled Be a Nose!, hit bookstores on Sunday, so animator Lars Edwards and the band the Black Keys collaborated on this high-definition cartoon trailer for it, done in the style of Spiegelman's work. Not surprisingly, McSweeney's was ultimately behind this post-modern hodgepodge. It's not much of an advertisement in the classic sense, but it is engrossing and the music is catchy, and it opens a good-sized window onto the endless prairie of weird that is Spiegelman's work. And, typical of anything McSweeney's is involved with, it's passingly amusing but doesn't really go anywhere. Via Cartoon Brew.
