Video: Cute kid gets animated with a superpower cannon

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. » 6/17/15 6:07pm 6/17/15 6:07pm

Cool stop-motion music video uses cassette tapes to recreate old games

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. » 6/08/15 12:33pm 6/08/15 12:33pm

This celestial music video was made with household goods

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… » 3/18/15 11:48am 3/18/15 11:48am

Jack White's newest interactive music video is three stories in one

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. » 2/20/15 10:06am 2/20/15 10:06am

It only took 5 seconds to film this entire music video

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… » 2/10/15 11:22pm 2/10/15 11:22pm

Life would be a lot cooler if it had these anime effects built in

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. » 2/05/15 7:59pm 2/05/15 7:59pm

These beautiful music videos should be turned into a video game ASAP

French animator Kadavre Exquis just sent us another beautiful video he directed for electronic-pop band Equateur. The song, called Cheval Noir, and its video are a continuation of their previous EP Lavaalready featured here. Both combined seem like the different levels of a cool video game. » 1/26/15 6:25am 1/26/15 6:25am

Cool SFX: Watch Zooey Deschanel dance with an invisible person

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. » 1/08/15 7:50pm 1/08/15 7:50pm

How Bowie flaunted a huge dick on Saturday Night Live and nobody noticed

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] » 1/06/15 9:10am 1/06/15 9:10am

How many of these pop culture references do you recognize in this video?

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. » 12/02/14 7:22pm 12/02/14 7:22pm

David Bowie's new song is surprisingly dark and jazzy

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: » 11/13/14 10:17pm 11/13/14 10:17pm

Music video: The statistical facts of a romantic relationship

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… » 11/12/14 7:04am 11/12/14 7:04am
