Mad Men Theme / Nature Boy

“Nature Boy” (made famous by Nat King Cole), is performed over top of a live rendition of RJD2’s “A Beautiful Mine” (the theme from Mad Men). It’s amazing how well this fits, and it’s a one-take to boot!

For the record I stopped watching Mad Men during season 3 because it got extremely boring, but I am told season 4 is better?

    the seasson four is way way better, but i think what’s cool about mad men is the fact that it goes slowly as life was at this time. love it. love the vid. love you.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
