  • 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

      • Liam Clark

        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.
