New Video: P.O.S., ‘Optimist’

Last time we heard from P.O.S. he was keyed up, dodging bombs in apartment buildings with the walls busted out and gunshots everywhere. Wasn’t time to get a breath until “Drumroll” ended. “Optimist” is the same ol’ P.O.S. — positive Midwest flow on turbo — only he’s slowed it down a bit and traded out the apocalypse for a mellower art vibe.

The video combines traditional graffiti-style animation, stop-motion paper cut-outs, deadly miniature car stunts, and a minimal beat pounded out on plastic cups. It’s a pretty amazing piece of work. Must’ve taken about 15 years to put together. Lucky for us, it only takes like three minutes to watch. So, let’s watch.
