British four-piece Glass Animals released their sophomore album, How to Be a Human Being, back in August via Harvest. Now the band has released a video for “Pork Soda” and launched a new interactive website, www.porksoda.co.uk. The video makes fun of TV commercials and the website features an old school TV that you can change the channels of. Check out the video below.

Lead singer Dave Bayley had this to say about the video and website in a press release: “As you may know, each song on this album is about a different character, and each character is visible on the album’s artwork. The lives of those characters are explored in more depth in the videos and accompanying websites. In this video we meet the song’s main character, Mr. Jennings, and get a glimpse into his world of television, slingshots, dancing dogs, SPAM, and American daytime infomercials. There are subtle references to the other album characters and their videos too….from themes in the narrative, to the colours, to the the odd physical props and products seen….the Palmbrella (for instant tropification), Super Chicken (YUM), and the delicious Sprayonnaise (for both rapid and ultra-hygenic mayonnaise application). Those products are explained in even more detail on the accompanying website where you can embrace your inner ‘Mr. Jennings’ and kick back in front of the tele and watch some proper daytime junk. Hehe. I hope you all enjoy.”

Thank you for publishing this information for us here. Despite it can’t help me with glass staircases for glassstructureslimited.com at least I’ll be able to have some fun with this interactive website which you described above.
