Watch: Playmobil version of Joy Division performs “Transmission”

Pin it

I'm not sure why this exists but I'm really glad it does. Some twisted genius has recreated Joy Division's 1979 performance of "Transmission" on the BBC show John Peel: In Session Tonight  with Playmobil toys.

The superb stop-motion animation does wonders for Ian Curtis' twitchy dance moves (yeah, yeah, we know he had epilepsy). Still with a plastic, perma-smile Curtis has never looked so happy. The band totally deserved a cameo in Toy Story 3.
