I'm looking for song, probably years 80's/90's. What i remember is music video that was cartoon-like, but technique was comic-like. Pictures was rather static - movement seemed as painted for comic. Some action was by moving objects apart of the main picture. Dialogues as far as i remember comic-like, subtitles in balloons boxes.

Persons - woman ala usa 60's, in motel bar. Man - ala 60's detective - coat, hat. Two bodyguards/mob thugs, big guys in suits, hats.

At some point thugs takes woman in to car. Probably there was chase on the road, but i can't really remember :)

Drawing style of pictures was probably like this one (comics no 11, 19): Detective Comics Values: Issues #11 to #20 so, it could be that i was wrong and the style of drawing, and reality is shown as in 30s in USA.

Regards, Marcin

  • altough very interesting is not the one i thought about :) – mmprog Dec 10 '16 at 20:24

It's a long shot, for several reasons, but Weird Al Yankovic's Miley Cyrus parody "Party in the CIA" features a 60's style animated video with chase sequences. The main character is a spy, not a detective, but many of the tropes are similar.

  • it was far older and different in styling – mmprog Dec 15 '16 at 22:37
