A friend turned me onto this awesome animated video for Fujiya & Miyagi’s “Ankle Injuries.”

Seems kinda familiar, don’t it? Like, say, this 2002 video of The White Stripes’ “Fell In Love With a Girl” by director Michel Gondry? (Check out the earlier clip after the jump, then compare and contrast in the comments.)

So, PopWatchers, is the Fujiya & Miyagi video a ripoff of the Stripes’ clip? Or a brilliant homage that takes it to the next level?
