Katy Perry ‘Wide Awake’ Gets Claymation Treatment
Pop Crush, gave the first review on May 27. 2012
by: Amy Sciarretto May 27, 2012
Katy Perry‘s Katy Cats are as creative as Lady Gaga‘s little monsters. One Perry fan created a claymation video for Perry’s latest lovelorn single, ‘Wide Awake,’ which she debuted live at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards last week. It’s a clever and cute visual re-enactment of the song, and the verdict is in. We like the Katymation version! (…)

Katy Perry in STOP MOTION con Wide Awake

Video tutt’altro che ufficiale, ma realizzato da una studentessa (tale Yvonne H) che ha voluto omaggiare con l’animazione PASSO UNO Katy Perry e la sua Wide Awake. Il risultato? Da ADORATORE della DIFFICILISSIMA stop motion, e senza dimenticare l’evidente amatorialità del tutto, a dir poco sorprendente. Bravissima Yvonne.
Another sweet review!
Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” Gets The Claymation Treatment
Homorazzi, May 28. 2012
(…)I say it’s pretty damn good effort for your first attempt and I think you should take requests for future stop-motion music videos. Any ready to see the boys from The Wanted in claymation form? How about One Direction? Check out the cute music video creation below and place your requests in the comments section.
A post on facebook (linking to the animated Wide Awake video): “omg this is fucking awesome .. Sorry but if you havent watched that you havent lived ♥ !! :)”
And there have been many lovely tweets (thank you all) even from some top people in “the businsess”; like this one:
Brad Bird (known for Simpsons, The Incredibles, Ratatouille etc) responded to a tweet with the following comment: “Starting a film is hard. Finishing one is WAAAY harder. Congratulations! Truly. Now Start another (And make it even better.)”
Even friendly bloggers gave supportive reviews;

“Wide Awake” is a song full of hope and melancholy. But this claymation take on it is just super cute! Some huge Katy Perry fan, presumably a Katy Cat, took the time to make a claymation video acting out the song “Wide Awake”. It’s pretty amazingly done. Wow. I hope Katy Perry’s official video for “Wide Awake” can top it!

Katy Perry: Un fan crea un video en plastilina de “Wide Awake”
(…) La verdad es que el producto final es muy lindo y pensamos que Katy realmente debería considerar hacer algo similar para su video oficial.
[translation: The truth is that the end product is very cute and we think Katy should really consider doing something similar for their official video.]

(…) her video works in everything as if it were “real” (though it may be objected to certain scenes, for obvious reasons, more often repeated).
Many a radio station also picked it up …
MTV.rs shared the video:
And I could just go on …
