Popeye Should Beat Up Jeff Tweedy

In the weirdest collaboration since Jack White teamed up with Insane Clown Posse, this week we saw the release of a new Wilco video for "Dawned on Me" featuring none other than Popeye the Sailor. (Well, blow me down Olive Oyl!)

Apparently there's some mad cross connection with the band and the old cartoon, as Huffington Post noted Wilco's been in a comic strip (I know... there's a weekly Popeye comic strip. Who knew?) and the two share a website (

As we join our heros, Jeff Tweedy, Bluto and Popeye are all competing for the love of the beauteous Olive Oyl. Expect appearances from Whimpy and Swee' Pea.

My childhood hasn't decided what to do with this video. Decide for yourself.
