Description of how the work connects to the public domain, provided by the author:

The inspiration for my project is a video game called Cup Head, which is an indie game released in 2017. I love the graphic design and the soundtrack of the game so much. The art direction of celluloid animation and jazz music brought me back to childhood. To pay homage to this masterpiece, I create this music video and hopefully make people happy :). The background music genre is Acid Jazz, remixed by Tri-Tachyon. The cel animes are mostly produced between the 1930s to 1950s, therefore the footage is not high resolution and drops frame sometimes. However, the flaws are somehow aesthetically amusing. All the assets are downloaded from archive.org and freemusicarchive.org.
