Video: Krooked Treez – Animated

Courtesy of Streethearted Videos, here is a new animated video of southern CA Reggae Hip-Hop band Krooked Treez. they drew and created all the animation and characters in the video. Straight from Serbia, here is what Streethearted Videos told The Pier about animated video:
“The idea of the video came from the fun and laid back vibe Krooked Treez music is all about. We wanted to depict the road trip the band has, to get to a show, in a funny and a colorful way. Always in a hurry, going through a lot of obstacles, (including FBI!) but never losing there cool and trying to never let the fans down! The visual inspiration had to be all the cartoons we watched as kids so everyone could identify with. The point was to create something careless, to what you can light up a joint too, and enjoy it in full.” Enjoy the song & video…
