Wilco released a music video for “Dawned on Me,” a song off the band’s latest album, The Whole Love. And get this, it’s also the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in 25 years. The video is a partnership between the Chicago folk-rock band’s dBpm record label and King Features, the company that has run Popeye comics since the spinach-loving sailor first graced the printed page in 1929. In the video, Popeye’s lanky love Olive Oyl is infatuated by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, causing both Popeye and his rival Bluto to try to win her back. Who wins? Well, you’ll just have to watch and see.
