Aesop Rock just dropped a brand new video for “Kirby“, the comically adorable ode to his feline friend, and a fan-favorite off his new album, The Impossible Kid. The video treatment sees Aesop Rock returning to puppet form again, as created by Toben Seymour (the same director behind Hail Mary Mallon’s video for “Whales”). In regards to the characters that appear in the video, Aesop notes, “The role of Kirby is being played by Dina because Kirby wanted way too much money to appear in her own video. Puppet Aesop is also way more agreeable than real Aesop.” Kirby is played here by Dina, who was rescued from the streets of downtown Los Angeles, and has since been adopted and found a forever home.
