Laith Bahrani "Low Morale"

Monkeehub.com is home to Laith Bahrani who fought back against the stresses and strains of the work place to such an extent that his series Low Morale has earned him employment with MTV, even allowing him to quit his full time job ("oh... such a sweet feeling") and work in his own studio - of one. His series is very funny, and he is British! Typical examples of the humour are the poor worker getting his ear bent by a customer but fighting back, unleashing something rather nasty from a cardboard box; or again the ear-bending ends up in a mini Heath Robinson series of events culminating in the filing cabinet flattening one of them. However by his own admission it was his animated version of Radiohead's "Creep" that made his name and fortune. This is a a nice acoustic version of the song and as it progresses the office is gradually sketched out around the lead character:
LOW MORALE ::: Presents Radiohead Music Video - CREEP
It is good to see Laith's business beginning to thrive. For example he has been commissioned to produce the site for the new British band 'Nizlopi'.
