Night Videos is an incredibly bizarre, future-focused animation courtesy of Stockholm-based duo Kungen and Hertigen. Completed for MTV, their Night Videos are surreal slices of stunningly-animated, abstract visions of an otherworldly experience.

It’s an excuse to bring a whole bunch of people together to make something great, and also to promote the work of the artists involved. Some of the best, most personal, experimental and vital animation going right now is happening on the internet. It’s being made late at night when other people have gone to sleep and on weekends when everyone else is out...'
