Abstract
On the stage of a deserted movie theater, a man in a black robe appears and performs a series of yo-yo tricks. In this surreal work of celluloid animation, Yo Yo The Clone, Too shows the yo-yo coming to life and spawning a number of organic forms — including a clone of the yo-yoist himself. Set to sounds reminiscent of 1970s video games, the film is a hypnagogic unfolding of shapes and sounds with a touch of Somersaulter-Moats and Somersaulter's signature Kafkaesque uncanniness.
