Ohbijou / New Years

Toronto-based art collective Exploding Motor Car has just released my favourite video of the year! The video is for Ohbijou’s song, New Years. The concept is brilliant, and the video is just beautiful.

It only has a handful of views on Youtube right now, but I’m sure that’ll change… Enjoy.

It looks like something Encyclopedia Pictura might make, don’t you think? Big round of applause for Exploding Motor Car, I want more.

    everything about this is great

  • Clif

    Yeah this isn’t nearly as cool as fat joe walking in slow motion through a smokey night club wearing sunglasses in the dark………… not!

    Its so great when artists get video production that is just as artistic or more so than the song being featured.

    great clip! I wish it had more rock creatures in it though, they were amazing!

    simply amazing. although unfortunately for the band, the video kind of overshadows the song itself!

    It truly is an artistic video – but I’m not sure if it will become my favourite video of the year. I always think there is so much more to come 😉

  • yeah dude

    HEY! LETS KEEP FAT JOE OUT OF THIS!

      Hey lets use our indoor voices (said in a hushed tone)

      I just watched the Encyclopedia Pictura link Jeff posted and it changed my life. I love this kind of film making.

    Very, very pretty. really like it. I also like that Clif through out a “not” joke.

    Don’t know what you guys think about what i’m about to say, but, said the video is really good (no doubts about it), let’s also say that the incoherence between live action and stop motion is really noticeable. I think that’s a petty ’cause it seriously affects the believability of the created (amazing) world. PES (www.eatpes.com) is master in shooting stop motion even when it involves live action and as reference to my consideration i think that what David O’Reilly wrote in this article is perfectly what i meant to say, but just well (http://www.davidoreilly.com/2009/08/basic-animation-aesthetics#more-1544)

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
