Moby Mistake on Wait For Me
Moby has released a live action video for “Mistake”, a follow up to the animated video launched earlier with the Blip series. French film director Yoann Lemoine worked with Moby to pick up the adolescent angst associated with Moby’s influences by New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen and David Bowie. Wait For Me, the album being released on September 14, is inspired in part by a speech by filmmaker David Lynch. The idea, “creativity for its own sake is a beautiful thing”, has allowed Moby to make his most personal, challenging and rewarding album yet.

Mistake Blip Version
Mistake features two of Moby’s alter egos, the Little Idiot and Dog. Moby explains that the Blip animation series comes from a self portrait he developed at the age of 19. He was working at a record store in Darien, Connecticut, when he was given the job of drawing a little cartoon on every single bag that left the store.
Animation was directed by Robert Powers.
