The Reader's Comics Issue went online today, and in honor of the occasion, the 12 O'Clock Track is Radiohead's "Paranoid Android." What does Radiohead have to do with comics? Well, not much—but "Paranoid Android" is my reflexive pick for my favorite animated music video. Swedish animator Magnus Carlsson directed it, and the short animated film he created for the lengthy single is as beguiling and twisted as the best songs on OK Computer. Carlsson's animation style is distinctive, at times crudely drawn but bearing his unmistakable signature. What are your favorite animated videos? Post them in the comments, and see Carlsson's video for "Paranoid Android" below.
