Tatu's pop music is the more saccharine but far more MTV-friendly of the two video projects. Created in just 17 days, "Show Me Love" is a triumph of pseudo-Japanese animation, complete with battling mecha, lithe anime babes with guns and climactic battles. El-P's video, on the other hand, was clearly a labor of love for the urban quartet and the animation matches the ominous themes and sound of the song, depicting a factory "building robotic relatives on the cheap, targeting single mothers," explains Sutton. The titular robo-dads resemble a splice of Futurama's Bender and Ward Cleaver. Greedy execs, breakdancing androids and a father, who despite his metal skin, gives in to drink are just some of the video's highlights. "Life gets to him anyway," laments Sutton. "It doesn't matter he's a robot."
If it weren't so dope, it'd be tragic.
