Otto And The Electric Eel
In this mostly dialogue-less, yet endlessly amusing creation by the Borscht Corp, a Voodoo legend is given a modern treatment, featuring Otto (Chango, God Of Thunder) battling to keep an bizarre entity (Serpent God Damballah) from ruining his date with destiny, aka a fine female. I didn't realize it as first, but the mustachioed fellow in the short is actually Otto Von Schirach, the now (in)famous Miami based Breakcore/IDM/Bass artist.
The project was the result of a filmmaker+musician collab series, and I personally thought they drew from an awesome pool of inspiration, as this short lead to about an hour of reading about Yoruban deities, which are pretty damn fascinating.
