Run the Jewels shared a stop motion music video for their RTJ4 song “Walking in the Snow”. The video – directed by Chris Burnewell, director of “Burn the Witch” and “Don’t Get Captured” – shows an action figure version of killer Mike and El-P leading a revolution against an icy, authoritarian regime. Check it out below.
“It’s been great working with the RTJ people again,” said Chris Hopewell in a statement. “Everyone was very aware of the gravity of the subject and RTJ didn’t want to be too obvious or to the point with the graphics. That’s why we went for an 80s-style fantasy look with evil snow warriors and their icy king suppressing the theme of bedroom toys. It was great to be involved in a project with a positive vibe to end a pretty shitty year. A big thank you to the RTJ crew for their truth and for letting us work with their great music again. “
