Sleep Walk, the end is nigh
It is the slow and rhythmic notes of the song Santo & Johnny entitled “Sleep Walk” that inspire the creative team of Hey Beautiful Jerk who created the homonymous animated short, set in a Manhattan in black and white, just moments before the Apocalypse.
We are invited to follow the last gestures of a man who, while the people around him disappear, the cars are sucked into a huge whirlwind, spends the last seconds he has left thinking of the people he loves, indeed that he loved.
In the darkest and saddest moment of his life, a few steps from the end of everything, the protagonist takes refuge in a happy thought.
