The Monkees - You Bring the Summer [Official Video]

Nice animation which Jason Nesmith I guess made, and I imagine required a lot of work to finish. The big thing beyond it is most of the Monkees aficionados have been dissecting this and spotting Easter eggs left and right.

-For one, just the styles of clothing, looks, are homages to different parts of episodes of the tv show. Even just the end of course with the four faces.

The color sequences blend together and segue into different eras.

-Daily Nightly newspaper
-Andy Partridge's name in the newspaper
-Love to Love in the newspaper
-a Keg/Case of Root Beer in the car (Root Beer in the lyrics)
-different nations flags in the background towards the end including Mexico and Japan.

it only has 9 thousand plays on YouTube, which it was shared a couple of days ago, but I'm still surprised by that number. More people should see this video, even if they don't spot a lot of the visual references.
