“Mr. Grogan” music video was created by iconic Cuban artist
The music video for “Mr. Grogan”, song from Colin Hay’s latest album Next Year People, premiered on The A.V. Club web site.
As a birthday present, Hay’s wife Cecilia managed to get in touch with Juan Padrón, the internationally acclaimed animator who garnered cult fame for his film Vampires In Havana. The director, who received Cuba’s National Film Award in 2008, has largely been in retirement in recent years, but agreed to create the video for this song off Hay’s latest album, Next Year People. Padrón’s simple but distinctive style makes for an ideal illustration of the story from “Mr. Grogan,” of the relationship between an older man and his loyal labradoodle.
