Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” Gets The Claymation Treatment

Just last weekend, Katy Perry hit the stage to premiere her new single, “Wide Awake” at the Billboard Music Awards. The dreamy number was a great kick off to debut the track on iTunes the very next day. Music – it’s a marketers game let me tell you. While Katy has released an official lyric video, no actual video has been released as of yet. Maybe after checking out this latest student project, she will feel inspired.

Yvonne H prefaces the video on Vimeo by saying this is her first stop-motion claymation video and thought that the colorful Katy Perry and her new track would be the perfect candidate for this little project. She also states that she made probably every mistake in the book and hopes we don’t mind the sometimes not-so-smooth motion of the animation. I say it’s pretty damn good effort for your first attempt and I think you should take requests for future stop-motion music videos. Any ready to see the boys from The Wanted in claymation form? How about One Direction? Check out the cute music video creation below and place your requests in the comments section.
