    i love how loose and imperfect this video is. gondry kept it nice and simple and this has some soul to it

    While there is an undeniable structural and stylistic similarity to ” Around the World” it’s done so with a very lovely, warm hand.
    Nice work Michel.
    Call me….

    have to say found the song irritating/distracting, I turned the sound off and just opened my itunes and Weight by the Band randomly came on and it worked together perfectly! Really cool video though.

    • Bernardo

      Try the first minutes with BELLE & SEBASTIAN´S “Step into My Office, baby”
      or with PLASTILINA MOSH´S “pervert pop song”

  • David

    Yes me 2 i think the song is irritating

    I think the video’s cool, but the song’s even better. And the final setup is just great. But I mean… it’s Michel Gondry. It had to be cool.

    “Eh…” is the only emotion I felt while watching this video. Where does one draw the line between “loose and imperfect” and “half-assed”?

    Love your site. Awesome post. Super cool and inspiring.

    Michel Gondry is the friggin man. If there was an Oscar for best music video, he would rack them up every year…

    Favorite shot was the GIANT line of people on the highway overpass.
    How did they get everyone to turn around at the same time on that shot?
    Must have been SO FUN to participate in. thanks for sharing this.

    This is beautiful…I agree that its looseness makes it wonderful…so human and down to earth…actually made me teary, in a good way.

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!
