WTF?!? Juan MacLean NookaNooka Toy?

 

Somebody’s been
playing with their kid’s Lego set lately….

 

 

By Blurt Staff

 

 

The DFA label, which recently
released The Juan MacLean’s fine new platter The Future Will Come (reviewed at BLURT here), has now teamed up
with design company Nooka to create The
Juan Maclean x NookaNooka
.

 

What, pray tell, be that?

 

 

“Born from the sci-fi influences
and music of DFA Records’ The Juan Maclean, and Nooka’s decidedly different
approach to design,” we are advised, “this little friend is the not-too-distant
relative of Nooka’s official mascot, the NookaNooka. Designed by DFA’s art
director Mike Vadino, and sculpted by LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney, this
little guy is a DFA collaborative masterpiece!”

 

View the video of the making of
the toy, below.
