Sunny Hill has just released a music video teaser for “In Praise of the Grasshopper“, their latest single!
An earlier report revealed that the song is inspired by one of Aesop’s Fables, ‘The Ant and the Grasshopper’. In the original fable, a grasshopper spends the warmer seasons singing while the ant works hard to store food for the winter. When the cold arrives, the starving grasshopper asks the ant for food, only to be rebuffed for its laziness. The moral of the story is that hard work will ultimately produce rewards in the end.
As expected from LOEN Entertainment‘s creative team, the video delivers stunningly vibrant visuals and an intriguing introduction to the music video’s storyline and concept.
With a quirky, vintage feel, the teaser brings us into a whimsical world. The Queen Ant, played by the Brown Eyed Girls‘ Narsha, stands on a stage and presents an award to a young man, announcing in a helium voice, “As you were consistently the best ant worker in the ant factory, this year’s Ant Award goes to the best ant… so here’s the Best Ant Award!” In a fit of rage, the Queen Ant then yells at three quivering members of Sunny Hill as she complains that the ants aren’t giving her enough attention.
The track will be released on January 13th. Until then, check out the teaser below!
