The promo accompanies the Tiny Tim track Livin’ In The Sunlight, Lovin’ In The Moonlight, a song originally featured in a 1930 Maurice Chevalier film, The Big Pond, and stars Buxton as a hallucinating out-of-work animator.

Next up is an ode to, um, sushi, written and performed by Buxton himself, with the video shot by David Wilson. Buxton describes the promo as follows: “We set out to make what is hopefully the most offensively racist and sexist video about sushi ever, with a kind of lardy, hairy, Ewok man in the middle.”

Both videos were produced by Colonel Blimp. More on Buxton’s Sky Atlantic show is here.
