Lost Tribes Video

Embedded above is a video by Andy and Carolyn London. Their description: “The latest short film from London Squared Productions. Urban Anthropologists, Andy and Carolyn London interview some of New York City’s more overlooked citizens.” And they call it Lost Tribes of New York City. Those of you familiar with Nick Park’s fabulous Creature Comforts videos will recognize the genre. (And if you’re not familiar with Creature Comforts, rent the DVD immediately. There’s a 5-minute short from 1989 in which he interviews zoo animals and then a series of TV shows from 2003 on British television. A US version aired briefly last year. You can get a DVD of the 2003 series along with the original short.)

Instead of animals, the London video has … well, see for yourself. It’s just three minutes. (HT: Andrew Sullivan.)
