Awesome of the Week

It’s been 25 years since the last Popeye cartoon and 10 years since Wilco released a video, but the stars aligned on this project. A collaboration between Wilco and the folks at King Features, which syndicates the Popeye comic strip, the video for the song “Dawned on Me” has the members of Wilco joined by Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto, Wimpy and Swee’Pea for music, dancing, mischief and a little romance. And the Popeye/Wilco thing doesn’t end there. The band, and the now-famous Wilco Brand Spinach Company were also featured in a Popeye comic book.
