Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer is one of the iconic music videos of the MTV era. It won a total of an as-yet-unmatched nine MTV Music Video Awards. That's a lot of little moonmen. Directed by Stephen R. Johnson, the animation is by a powerhouse stop motion match-up of Aardman Animations' Peter Lord and Nick Park with the Brothers Quay.
