The Return of Taki76

A few weeks ago, I reported that Ropeadope recording artist Taki76 had made a toy of himself to 'jam' with his Raymond Scott figure. With these dolls and others, Taki has now created an RS tribute video featuring his homemade stop-motion animation. The soundtrack is Taki's new cover of Scott's "Powerhouse," with rhymin' courtesy of Jenny Jen The Skate Woman. (Don't blink or you'll miss cameos by Andre 3000, Mr. T, Doom's mask, Pac-Man, and others.)

UPDATE from Taki: "I made a black & white version just for fun. I used an original Scott recording of 'Powerhouse': here."
