Created by the Pearsmiths, Your Man is an absolutely fantastic mega-homage to 80's flicks, 90's videogames and...the fine Irish city of Dublin. It's a little hard to describe, but let's just say that it's a bizarre mixture of pixel art, 3D, Sim City 2000 disasters all being propagated by a mysterious, apparently omniscient man with a yellow hoodie, who seems to be behind some of the madness unfolding on this isometric recreation of the capital of Ireland.
The sheer insanity of this awesome short, scored by the pretty damn talented rockers (Also from Dublin) known as Sounds of System Breakdown (Check their awesome music here) definitely took me back to watching some of Paul Robertson's insane animations like King Of Power 4 Billion, which you can check out after the break. Their music definitely draws some parallels with the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode and others
