Bike Hero!

This would take FOREVER. This kid takes a page outta the Bat For Lashes video and recreates Guitar Hero on his bike with a bunch of his homies lending a hand. Prepare to be amazed. This should be the official video for Prisoner of Society by The Living End.

According to Fubiz, it was directed by Jaron Albertin.

    Pretty sweet. Although I heard it was a viral video made by Activision (or Red Octane) which kinda ruins it a little. Still cool though.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
