Crossroads' directorial duo Walter Robot's dynamic and inventive visual style is the driving force behind a trio of uniquely inspired music videos for Grammy award-winning recording artists Gnarls Barkley, French-born DJ Vitalic, and Death Cab For Cutie.
For the Gnarls Barkley track Mystery Man Walter Robot has created rudimentary 2D doodles and placed them in a 3D world. A superhero flies his way across a pen and ink metropolis battling an out of control ego monster while an animated version of the enigmatic duo known as Gnarls Barkley perform on a cartoon rooftop.
