Family duo Hermanos Inglesos’ music video for “Wanderland” featuring MeMe is a quirky animated adventure set in the forest. The video opens to animals bobbing their heads along to the song’s pulsing beat. A small bird walks rhythmically through this habitat until it spots a captivating purple berry. Naturally, the bird runs over to eat it, and everything is flipped upside down from there. It begins thrashing about and twitching uncontrollably, just in time for the chorus of “Wonderland, wonderland, take me to your wonderland,” to be sung.
In this berry-induced delusion, the bird sees a brand new colorful setting all around it. It grows incredibly long legs and begins making its rounds through the bizarre forest, until suddenly, it’s shot by a giant owl. As we transition out of the bird’s mind, we find that the strange berry sent the bird on this journey, and ultimately caused its death as well. Bandmembers Didier and Cedric Engel happen to be in the forest and notice the dying bird. The video concludes to them smiling in satisfaction after adding it to their collection of forest animal victims.
