Illustration for article titled A gorgeous music video about a werewolf going on a rampage in the 1940s

As a companion piece to Glen Duncan's novel The Last Werewolf, animators George Fort and Monica Smith (Superjail!, Venture Bros.) teamed up with cabaret band The Real Tuesday Weld — who you may know from the video game L.A. Noire — for "Me and Mr. Wolf," a gleefully violent music video that harkens back to the animation of the 1940s. Witness a werewolf and a little red femme fatale wander through a hellish (albeit bouncy) cartoon world.

Explained The Real Tuesday Weld lead singer Stephen Coates to HuffPo, " 'Me & Mr. Wolf' retells the story of Little Red Riding Hood from the point of view of the wolf getting consumed rather than Red. It's a little psychodrama about the fear of falling in love." And mass evisceration. That too!

Incidentally, this isn't the first trippy music video The Real Tuesday Weld made with the Fort and Smith. Here's their 2008 video for the song "Kix"...

...and the 2007 video for the track "The Show Must Go On."
