Feeling more like an art installation or visual poem than a music video, Warren Fu of Partizan directs an animated epic for The Strokes’ “Ode to the Mets.” For the six and a half minute journey, we are continuously pulled back through 8 different chapters. From the prehistoric era, to an abandoned school gym, to an underwater New York City, the viewer seamlessly drifts through these worlds like a ghostly spectator.

Though “Ode to the Mets” wasn’t a designated single off The Strokes’ latest album The New Abnormal, Fu approached the band with a visual hook that came to him when he was listening to the song in February, having envisioned a long, continuous single shot film, pulling back through space and time.
