    this is brilliant! :-)

    i wonder how long the song in the video was..

  • Nicolas

    The director copied Spike Jonze in Sweater Song. He recorded it in slow motion and fast forwarded it, Jonze recorded it fast and slowed it down. Unoriginal

      haha the spike jonze video is by no means the only other video to have used the idea of performing a song at a slower speed and speeding it up afterwards. aside from that the two videos have nothing in commmon –

      however the Vampire Weekend video A-Punk (mentioned below) is EXTREMELY similar – i hadn’t seen it until now

        Also the Mae Shi use a similar Technique. A lovely effect, but it is wrong to attribute it’s use to any particular band. Chances are someone was dicking around with this technique and someone saw it a LONG time ago. It goes up the ladder.

        Check em out. One of my favorite live shows yet.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
