Jason Collett "Love You Babe" (video)
Published Feb 05, 2016Jason Collett's Song and Dance Man was released today (February 5), and with it came a new batch of heart-swelling tunes from the Toronto troubadour. To celebrate, he's highlighting the record's "Love You Babe" with a lovey-dovey video comprising various vintage cartoon bits.
Compiled by Hayden Desser, the video presents plenty of wacky clips, from the sight of kittens blasting off shotguns from a laundry line, to a pair of shaggy-haired twins can-canning across an apartment scene, to a visual pun of a mutt blasting a jazzy beat from the cover of a book called Bulldog Drummin (look it up, folks).
While arguably all on topic, some moments are better than others. For instance, the lines sung as a couple of swans canoodle on a lake, their necks pressed together into the shape of a heart: "Hold your body close to mine, so I can love you, babe."
You'll find the video below, while Song and Dance Man can be picked up now via Arts & Crafts.
