Jan 25, 2012 Wilco Bookmark and Share

Over the weekend Wilco were treated with the unexpected, but no less awesome honor of appearing in the Sunday edition strip of “Popeye,” which featured Jeff Tweedy and the band arriving in a Wilco-named boat to deliver Wilco-brand spinach to the masses of the iconic strip. Just a taste of things to come, the Chicago-based band has released a video for The Whole Love single “Dawned On Me,” framed as an animated episode alongside the Sailer Man himself, Bluto, Olive Oyl, Swee’ Pea, and Wimpy. Directed by Darren Romanelli the video is one of the first Wilco has released since 1999 and is the first hand-drawn “Popeye” cartoon in more than 25 years. The clip progresses in typical “Popeye” fashion, with Bluto getting a little overly handsy with the spinach enthusiast’s girl, only to throw a new contender into the mix. Check out watch happens in the video below.
