PROZZAK

PROZZAK
Source: Wikipedia

Prozzäk is a Canadian pop music group that consists of Jay Levine (Simon) and James Bryan McCollum (Milo). The name "Prozzäk" was inspired by the drug Prozac; in an interview with the New York Times, McCollum mentioned that their music makes people feel good and happy, which is an effect of the drug Prozac. Their music tells a tale of two friends who are in search of their true love. Their music videos feature full animation of the two characters Simon and Milo.

Prozzak are two animated characters named Simon and Milo. The creation of Simon and Milo initially began with accents suggested by the other members of The Philosopher Kings during their road trips. One thing led to another and the cartoon characters became a part of Prozzäk.
The friendship of Jay and James brought together through music is referenced with the origins of Simon and Milo. The two are over 200 years old and were enemies in a previous life. Simon and Milo fought each other in a 20-year-old war called "Ochiyaki". During their battles with each other, a Great Unseen Voice projected down from the sky and told them they were to be best friends, sent through time to the 21st century, where they were given a mission. That mission was for the two to find true love through their music.
In their music videos, Simon is in constant search of his true love, believing that the perfect woman is out there. "Simon runs the full-gamut of cartoon emotions. He believes that there is a perfect girl and that's part of his problem" Jay Levine stated in an interview with Teenmusic.com. As a result, Simon ends up feeling depressed. Their introduction in their album Saturday People mentions that they visit many nightclubs and bars hoping to find their true love, but Simon gives up from his long history of failures, and lies "face down in his own banana milkshake". Just then, the Great Unseen Voice from the heavens calls out again, telling them that they have lost their way, and encourages them to remember their mission: only True Love holds the key to their destiny. Their music thus represents their social journey to find their true love.
