Bad Song / Good Video of the Day: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “Downtown”

macklemore-downtown-01 macklemore-downtown-02 macklemore-downtown-03

Yes, I’m posting a Macklemore song, and yes this song is pretty terrible. Macklemore and Co obviously wanted to cash in on the success of Bruno Mars “Uptown Funk” brazenly calling this song “Downtown” and stuffing Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz and Eric Nally (who looks and sounds like Freddie Mercury) into a hackneyed Westside Story.

Having said all that, this video directed by Ryan Lewis, Jason Koenig, and Ben Haggerty is worth watching for the art direction. For whatever reason they didn’t give full credits in the video for a lot of people who I think made it worth watching, most notably: Art director John Lavin, cinematographer Christopher Probst, and stylists Therese Lefebvre and Paul White.

Watch Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s “Downtown” below (and maybe mute it).

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
