Back in 6th grade, we fixated on our Escher calendars just like everyone else (right?), but we never bothered to delve into the mathematics behind the art, especially since Gödel, Escher and Bach is over 800 pages and we have RSS feeds to read. However, the video directing team OneInThree, also responsible for The Teenagers' "Make It Happen", embraced the "strange loop" and turned it into a case study of Hayden Thorpe's mustache. And it is way more complicated than the original video for the song which was actually the Wild Beasts' debut single in 2006 and is now being rereleased off Limbo, Panto, making it a sort of discographical strange loop in itself.
