As one meme says:
Director: How many different animation technologies do you want in this video, Peter?
Even so, the song has an incredibly cutting commentary. It's about a young man who is going to outgrow his hometown and be a big man in the big city. While generally serious, it still takes the opportunity to make fun of the protagonist ("a snow white pillow for my big fat head").
It's not as good as Mercy Street, Solsbury Hill, or especially Don't Give Up, but it's still an awfully good song, and it's an experience to watch.
