Wilco Teams Up With Popeye For A Video

Wilco Meets Popeye


Here's something random. Wilco has produced very few videos over its long career, but now you can watch an animated version of Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, John Stirratt, Nels Cline, Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen alongside a dancing Popeye and Olive Oyl in a brand new clip.

The concept of putting this classic cartoon with this great American band came from director Darren Romanelli. As in most Popeye cartoons, someone is after Olive Oyl's affections — for this video it's Tweedy and, of course, Bluto.
