Brisbane indie-pop band Hey Geronimo have been celebrating the Australian summer with the video for “Dreamboat Jack”, garnering over 50,000 hits on YouTube. Billed as “aka the Greatest Puppet Chase Ever Filmed”, the adorable stand-in characters face classic obstacles such as a plate glass window, a wayward dog and even fragile eggs as they speed along.
