The British rock band Muse is using the work of Japanese comedian Tekken in an official music video that will debut on Wednesday.
Tekken had created a three-minute “manga” animation titled “Pendulum” for the Muse song “Exogenesis: Symphony Part 3 (Redemption)” for a television program. Afterwards, the video was uploaded to YouTube and became popular with more than 3 million views. Muse eventually heard of this video and watched it, and came up with the idea to work with Tekken. The band decided to use the footage as the official music video for the song.
The song in its entirety is 4:36 in length, and so Tekken worked for 60 days to create the additional footage for the entire song. He had drawn 1,620 images for the original three-minute animation.
The completed official music video will be available in 59 countries on Wednesday including countries in North America and Europe.
