Blink's Layzell Bros Animate Giant Baby for New Sarah Silverman Show
Blink, 7 months, 1 week ago
Havoc ensues in offbeat opening credits for 'I Love You, America'
Last week saw the release of Sarah Silverman’s new TV show, ‘I Love You, America’ on US streaming channel, Hulu. Blinkink’s The Layzell Bros bring their off-beat, anarchic humour to the show with this loud and ludicrous animation for its title sequence.
The film follows a giant belligerent baby stomping across the ‘United’ States leaving havoc in its wake. Cars, crowds and mountains are torn apart in the fast paced film, which ends with the show’s logo, also designed by the brothers. The film was produced by Blink’s entertainment division, Blink Industries.
Layzell brother Paul says: “The baby is made up of millions of hopes, dreams and aspirations - and although big and powerful, it is, like us, learning and growing. As it angrily searches for its heart, it leaves a big mess in its wake. Ultimately when the people come together to love and nurture it, the heart is returned and all is well for another day.”
Stand-up comedian Silverman asked Blinkink’s super siblings, The Layzell Bros to create the title sequence after seeing their comedy music video for Adam Buxton. ‘I Love You, America’ sees Silverman travel to the deepest corners of America in an earnest attempt to find what connects people in a country that’s so divided. In the show the New Hampshire native, known for her progressive politics, has dinner with a Louisiana family (“They’ve never met a Jew before, and I’ve never met a family from Slidell, La.”) and visits Mineola, Texas, where more than 80% of votes were cast for Trump.
