John 5 Previews Animated "Zoinks!" Video, Featuring Nikki Sixx

John 5 has shared a preview of his upcoming “Zoinks!” video, which features a slew of guest voices, among them Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx. You can watch the teaser clip above.

In the tradition of Scooby Doo and Groovie Goolies, the "Zoinks!" video features a blend of 2D hand-drawn animation, 3D computer-generated imagery and live action. The video is written and directed by Disney animator Brett Broggs (Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph), with live footage shot by Matt Zane. In addition to Nikki Sixx, the video also features the voice acting talents of Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady on The Brady Bunch), and Cinderella drummer Fred Coury, who also scored the video with John 5.

“Zoinks!” will appear on John 5 and the Creatures’ upcoming album, Invasion, due in 2019. 

The band will kick off the second leg of the North American Invasion tour on February 22 in Anaheim, California. The tour will feature support from Jared James Nichols.
