Dead Obies are bringing the Montréal $ud saga to another level with their new cartoon series 4:20 with Dead Obies. Following the publication of their eponymous book, which dissects the album’s music and lyrics, the band now veers towards self-mockery, offering fans a trippy behind-the-scenes window into the boys’ lives. Written by Martin C. Pariseau and animated by Vincent Bilodeau, each episode will star a member of the troop. One of the six episodes will be released each Monday, starting today. Watch Episode 1: Le meeting now at 420.deadobies.com.
