For Valentine’s Day, Psyop took O. Henry’s classic “The Gift of the Magi,” and put it in the blender. The result is a deliciously demented Valentine from Psyop to you. (By “you,” I mean the faceless thousands that read this blog.)
Enjoy Motionographer’s exclusive big version of this twisted project. Nothing puts a sardonic grin on St. Valentine’s face like a cutesy-wutesy bloodbath.
You can also check it out on Psyop’s site.
(The soundtrack is “Love in My Pocket” by VHS or Beta made available to Psyop by special permission from Brian Long at Yes Know Management.)
