Vincent Vega – El Piso Se Va a Manchar| 07 December, 2011
Vincent Vega are not named after the John Travolta character in Pulp Fiction but actually after the combined names of actor Vincent D’Onofrio and Vega (the Spanish cage fighter from “Street Fighter”). They are a Uruguayan duo Matías González and Mauricio Sepúlveda, who’ve been around since 2008 and have clearly been influenced by Eduardo Mateo as well as American bands such as Big Star or Wilco.
This video for “El Piso se va a Manchar” uses the rotoscoping style of animation whereby the animator traces over live film, with every second having 15 drawings. It was directed by María Noel Silvera and Sebastián González Majo, and it’s quite glorious in both it’s audio and visual dimensions.
