Laundry! and director Rich Lee have teamed up for Eminem’s latest video, "Rap God." Laundry! created a humorous, cartoon-like treatment inspired by Max Headroom, a popular animated character and TV personality from the 1980s, complementing both the fast-paced edit and the rap star’s signature wit. To further enhance and sell this approach, Laundry! built and animated musically-driven line animations that serve as a nod to Headroom. The updated animations were designed to match the frenetic tempo of the track. Laundry! strategically amplified the visuals to peak at the song’s climactic verse, Eminem’s rapid-fire technical display that finds the MC serving up 100 words in 16 seconds, represented visually when his brain explodes.

Community creator Dan Harmon talks to Adweek about his new animated series Rick and Morty, which in some ways is diametrically opposed to the vibe of his NBC sitcom. He says, "Community starts with the idea that we are all people and part of some family, and usually the call to adventure is the insinuation that there’s a system or ideology that’s more important than people, and it causes chaos. And they eventually come to the conclusion that when they got out of bed that morning, they were as good as they were going to get. Rick and Morty is an inversion of that: Science rules supreme, marriages are on the rocks, and things get so chaotic that it does boil down to the petty, emotional issues of humanity. And the moral is that we’re all pretty insignificant."
