The Heath Ledger directed animated music video for US band Modest Mouse‘s track “King Rat” has premiered online today (August 5).
The six-minute video was made by the deceased actor to raise awareness of the dangers of commercial whaling.
The animation was finished after Ledger’s death in 2008 by the video compnay he collaborated with.
The video ends by saying: “This began with our friend, a great defender of life, and was completed in his spirit.”
