Felix the Cat takes a bender in BC Camplight’s new video

BC Camplight gives Felix the Cat a psychedelic makeover in his new video for “You Should’ve Gone To School.”

The animated video blends the cartoon character from the silent-film age with modern quotes like “Yo Cuz! Let’s go to town!” and “Why’s everyone always jamming me up?”  Fits and starts of psychedelic color creep in more and more toward the end of the video as Felix slowly gets trashed.

The repeated phrase “You Fool!” with its disco flourish, is euphoric and uplifting, while serving up a harsh lesson for the perils of cutting out of school/chores/piano practice. But it sure makes skipping school sound like a hell of a lot of fun.

BC Camplight’s “How To Die In the North” is out now on Bella Union.
