Comic-Con started yesterday, the ultimate convention of all things geeked-out, comic book-clad and science fiction-saturated. So give a nod to the nerds and vote to tell us whether you think Kanye West’s “Heartless” or Michael Jackson’s “Leave Me Alone” does animation better. May the (music) force be with you.
Kanye West “Heartless” – This video is out-of-this world cool. Aside from the celestial awesomeness, the cartoon version of Kanye looks scarily similar to him in real life. So to the crafty geniuses who created this – kudos! This animation makes me wanna watch cartoon marathons in my PJs with a bowl of Fruit Loops. But it also makes me want to throw on some heels and hit the dance floor. I don’t know how you do it Kanye, but you do it so damn well.

Michael Jackson “Leave Me Alone” – MJ always had it rough with tabloids. The mildest of the wild rumors included him sleeping in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. Well, closer to the truth. Anyway, rather than lashing out, he created this
expensive fantastic dream-like video with quirky cartoon elements to push back. There’s a larger than life mouth that swallows him, a snappy alligator and a spinning brain. If that doesn’t sound intriguing, I don’t know what does. Thanks for always keeping us on our toes, Michael!
