White Rabbits / Percussion Gun

I’m diggin’ this video for Percussion Gun by Brooklyn-based, White Rabbits. Directed by Andrew Droz Palermo. In many ways it reminds me of Battles’ video for Atlas.

Watch the video below!

White Rabbits perform Percussion Gun on Letterman (CRAZY!!!):

The song is a bit old but I saw it on Monster Children and had to post it.

PS – Here’s the Battles video for Atlas (aka best video EVER):

    Too bad they stole the drum beat from Adam and The Ant’s Kings Of The Wild Frontier.

    No one seems to notice this for some reason.

    Yeah, this song is super sick. The Letterman performance was so good.

    I LOVE when a band plays with soo much energy that I have no choice but to punch myself in the face. These guys are heroes…

    the battles video is the best video ever? really jeff? i mean its good, as is the tune, but the best ever? i think that hyperbole might be one too far. GT

      yea I could see that.. if you don’t like pianos, sick drums, rolling bass, infectious leads and puppies. Totally understandable!

Hilarious Hack of the Day: The Secret Selfie Stick aka Really Long Arm


For anyone who finds selfie sticks too embarrassing to use in public, a guy named Mansun has come up with a solution. Made with two right hands ordered off Amazon (naturally), two original selfie sticks, and a shirt with extremely long sleeves, Mansun’s hack certainly addresses one problem. (Of course, he may have just created another).

Click here for a more detailed account of his process. More hilarious images below, love the shot of the shirt sleeves!
