This adorable little girl gets to live every kid’s dream and turn her arm into an animated rocket cannon that blasts bad guys. The music video for Grades’ song King was made by Taichi Kimura and features Laika Takasu dancing (really well!) around an empty school as animation enemies sprout all around her.
The music video for Opiuo’s song Quack Fat uses 240 audio cassettes, 5,600 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs and 1 Walkman to make an awesome stop motion animation that brings back memories of nostalgic technology and old video games like Space Invaders and Pong. The song is fun and catchy too.
Forgive me for being enchanted with this beautiful music video for Jack and the Giant's song A Love Like Pi. I feel like I'm following orbs with unique personalities traveling through space. Or like watching comets burn as they complete their journey to different planets. In reality though, I'm just watching soap…
Jack White's music video for his latest single That Black Bat Licorice is three videos in one. If you just hit play you'll see an animation of Jack White. If you hit "3" while the video is playing, you will get a live action version of the first one. And if you hit "B", a video of people headbanging like mad.
In what has to be one of the shortest shoots ever, all it took to make this three and a half minute music video was five seconds of filming. That seems like some pretty good bang for your buck! The trick was that a Phantom 4K camera inhaled those five seconds at 1000FPS to create this moving mural painting of a music…
Neat animation effects in this video directed by Ernest Desumbila for Lighten Up, the latest song by Citizens! This London band kind of reminds me of Phoenix after going through a dance club blender mixed with some LCD Soundsystem and Pet Shop Boys ice. Good track to drive around LA, destination unknown.
Here's the music video for She & Him's song Stay Awhile. It's a lovely stroll that follows Zooey Deschanel dancing around with an invisible person inside a bedroom, a living room and the clouds. Dancing alone is always the best since no one is watching but dancing with an invisible person looks even better.
Yesterday was the anniversary of one of the most surreal music performances in TV story: 35 years ago David Bowie ushered the 1980s in Saturday Night Live. The producers censored a gay reference in the last of his three-song set—but they missed him repeatedly showing a giant penis at the end of it. [NSFW-ish]
I can't figure out if this music video was made using computer graphics or macro photography. Maybe it's a combination of both. Or maybe the eggs I ate this morning had some toxins and all of this is only happening inside my head.
Cruisr's music video for their song All Over contains so many pop culture references in its animation that I can't even keep up. There are famous couples side by side and there are movie scenes recreated and it's just so much fun trying to spot them all. It's like seeing all the movies I've ever seen in one video.
Monday mornings are tough. I had my shower, my coffee, I went through my morning work routine, and just when I thought I was recovering from my monday blues I bumped into this: A surreal and hypnotic animated music video that made me go into full weekend mode again.
Most love songs have music videos where couples kiss, hug, or have sex. This video for the song Luna by South Korean band HEO does the same, except they take it to the extreme thanks to some cool but really creepy special effects.
David Bowie has a new song in his retrospective album Nothing Has Changed. It's called Sue (Or In a Season of Crime), a dark jazz track full of dissonance that would be perfect for a Hitchcock movie or, better yet, a film starring Alain Delon and directed by Jean-Pierre Melville. Watch the equally dark video here:
It's fun to think of your own life in statistical terms. How many tacos al pastor did I eat in my entire life, how many kisses did I give, or how many trousers did I brake. This cool music video for the song Afterglow does that. It shows five years of a couple's relationship summed up into cold-hearted but fun…
