'Odelay'

What exactly is that creature that's jumping the hurdle? For those still wondering, it's a Komondor that takes a running jump on the cover art for Beck's 'Odelay' album. A Komondor is a Hungarian dog that's known for its thickly matted hair.

As is often the case with musicians, it's the smallest details that seem to stump them. When it came time to pick some artwork for the 'Odelay' disc, Beck was at a creative standstill until his girlfriend showed him this image. The animated GIF creator then took things a step further by giving the Komondor the action shot it so long deserved.
