Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Music Videos / Music Videos / 2008

The ultimate fisherman’s tale comes to life with a surreal journey from a dockside tavern to the high seas in pursuit of mythical creatures and exotic places. Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock plays a salty old sea dog trying to convince other old fishermen of his story about a musical fish. The tale flashes back to Isaac as a younger man, showing how his obsession with finding the mythical fish caused the loss of his hand, which strange islanders then replaced with a working microphone. The other fishermen laugh at Isaac’s unbelievable story, only to be stunned when the grumpy bartender angrily steps forward and confirms Isaac’s account by revealing that his leg is now a guitar neck.
