In Joseph Wallace's utterly charming stop-motion animated video for Sparks, puppet versions of Russell and Ron Mael find themselves in Paris, and then engaged in hot pursuit of an elusive bird of paradise.

This was clearly a labour of love by Wallace who was involved in all aspects of the production, from making the puppets and sets, to camerawork and editing, and has done a great job.
