Pinker Tones: SEXY ROBOT 2, and Working Bees. (music video)

Recently on Boing Boing tv, we aired an animated music video by Bill Barminski and Christopher Louie for the Pinker Tones' song "S.E.X.Y. R.O.B.O.T" We loved the band's vibe, and couldn't get enough of the song, so we reached out to this Barcelona-based electronica duo for more. Today on BBtv, a remix of that song, with an alternate video featuring actual real live sexy robots (director: David Lopez). And in part two of today's show, another delightful and new video for their song "Working Bees" (director: The Magical Thinking studio). You can catch the Pinker Tones on tour throughout the USA, including spots on the WARPED tour.

    Robina is quite fetching. 🙂

    I love the mix of live-action miniature puppetry against full-size backgrounds and CGI and vids in this. Rather more interesting than the all-CGI first one. Reminds me a little of “Life With Loopy” or “Action League Now” on the old KaBlam! show on Nick.

    Somebody should introduce cowboy robo to Klaus Pierre. Cowboy can school Klaus on proper party-animal etiquette.

    good but the first street shot must be in one of the most unglamorous parts of the UK.

    Both vids are good btw and the track is kicking
