    • cool i’ve never seen his stuff before – i guess we have another “Keith Schofield thing” where a contemporary artist hasn’t been given credit for obvious reference in a video

      • they aren’t the only ones to have used this trick though.

      • Dan

        Yeah I don’t think you can accuse them of ripping off what is essentially a pretty basic visual trick. It’s not exactly a skateboard on a pile of cheeseburgers.

        Nice video anyway – reminds me a bit of Spike Jonze’s vids from the 90s.

  • Nobody makes a better, more creative, small-budget vid than the NNB

  • Jeff, DSK, you should check out the rest of their videos. This is just one of their many cool vids.

    What a fancy video, I really liked it. Great song.

    To be honest, I already had this idea a long, long time ago, before these Naive New Bastards – oh sorry, Beaters – and Romain Laurent were even born. I simply just never knew how to do it… Can anyone please explain me how this magic trick works? it’s really fucking depressing to still be in the dark. Many thanks.

    • i would assume they are harnesses – it seems pretty obvious that it is a harness that is removed in post-production especially in the palm tree shots.

  • “i love you baby, but you got clothes like a fucking dickhead.”

  • Rafiki

    I saw this group in concert last week, it’s the best party of my life >.>

Instagram of the Day: Artist Creates Vintage VHS Versions of Modern Movies

If you grew up in the 80s you’re really gonna like this Instagram account. Steelberg takes current films and makes fantastic retro VHS covers for them. Many of you will be too young to have ever gone to a store to rent a video but seeing these makes me kinda miss the whole movie-choosing ritual. Have a look at more VHS covers below.
