We weren't sure what it was at the time. But word got around quickly in our South Austin neighborhood that they were filming a movie. Naturally we were curious as to what movie could generate such a costumed character. Eventually we found out that the movie was called Kabluey.
We never really heard much about it after that. We're not sure when it was released and we're not even sure what kind of reviews it got (though, Rotten Tomatoes has it at an 88% fresh).
Anyway, we finally got around to Netflixing it this weekend. It was fantastic. Granted, we're biased because we got to see clips of Austin and the awesome City Market that befriended our fair neighborhood.
Hadn't heard this song at the time. It's the Magic Bullets from 2007. It's in the closing credits of the movie. Great song.
