A Very Classic Short

Take note! Very Clever’s 2007 award winning short Sing O’Muse is now on the site. Its one of our favorites, and the only one to include a cheerful ditty about the brutal sacking of a city. And we made it only 12 hours! Enjoy.

Chicago Politics

Sadly, Chicago Alderman Ed Bus failed to garner the necessary votes to force Rahm Emanuel into a run-off, ending his Very Clever endorsed bid for Chicago Mayor.

Very Clever is proud of our contribution to Alderman Bus’ candidacy, and all Ed Bus videos can be seen at 53rdward.com and Schadenfreude.net.
