If you’re any kind of BoJack Horseman fan, you’ll likely never forget Oberhofer’s “Sea of Dreams.” The song played at the end of the largely silent “Fish Out of Water”—Paste’s pick for the very best TV episode of 2016—replacing the show’s traditional end theme and putting the perfect finishing touch on a superlative piece of television. Now, with the impending release of BoJack Horseman (Music From The Netflix Original Series) and return of BoJack Horseman itself, Paste is proud to premiere the video for Oberhofer’s integral piece of the show’s soundtrack.

The “Sea of Dreams” video is a hazy, lo-fi affair that grows increasingly surreal as it floats along. “You’ll find me in a sea of dreams,” sings frontman Brad Oberhofer, supine on a slick, black tarp and clad in a leopard-spotted coat, putting on a whimsical one-man show. The subtly fantastic video matches wonderfully with “Sea of Dreams” itself, a piano-driven anthem that feels at once both sad and celebratory—a bittersweet mixture that perfectly epitomizes BoJack Horseman.

Oberhofer  had this to say about the song and show’s connection:

“I’ve always had a deep affinity for cartoons. Most of the cartoons I grew up watching seemed to embody more truth than non-cartoon television programming. I’m proud to have this song affiliated with an episode of television I not only find hilarious in many ways, but also that surfaces truth through light of the humor in BoJack’s world. I feel honored to be a part of this soundtrack.”

As for the making of the “Sea of Dreams” video itself, Oberhofer added:

“This song is deeply personal. Austin, the director assembled a group of his friends at film school at University of Texas in Austin, to build the set, and film and edit the video. This entire project was a labor of love for all parties involved, and it was inspiring to watch Austin and his crew of hilarious, clever and simultaneously focused friends work together.”

BoJack Horseman returns to Netflix for a fourth season on Sept. 8, while BoJack Horseman (Music From The Netflix Original Series) is due out digitally on Sept. 8 and on CD Sept. 29 via Lakeshore Records.
