“Telephone,” Lady Gaga & Beyonce

We need to talk about this NOW.

Personally I love it. The acting is pretty much terrible, and the product placement is garish and shameless, but god, it is epic.

OK GO vs The Bravery- COMMENT POLL

OK GO’s newest video for “This Too Shall Pass” gives me weird deja vu.

Hmm, I wonder why? OH WAIT.

Same domino opening shot and all! Which video do you guys like better? I love The Bravery’s for coming first…but I love the color usage and sheer scale of calamity from the OK GO video, too.

Valentine’s also got a domino-esque video. Check it out, here.

Reeeeeeee-Cuuuuuuuuuuuut

Hey dudes, so just for fun and editing practice, I re-cut the fantastic footage from the Oppenheimer video to this Silversun Pickups song, “There’s No Secrets This Year.” Enjoyzz!!

“Mowgli’s Road,” Marina & The Diamonds

I need some second opinions. What do you guys think of this video?
I sort of hate it, but I love the song.

I’m not sure what it’s trying to do… other than be like, “Look at these weird paper arms and legs!” I’m typically a huge advocate for puppetry, but this just isn’t working for me. The effects are done flawlessly, I just don’t think the paper extremities look very good and for such a great song, the whole concept sort of goes nowhere.

Anyone else? Thoughts? Bueller?

“Might Like You Better,” Amanda Blank

This isn’t a super great music video or anything, but it has great energy, it’s fun, and I like this girl. This is pretty much my new favorite song.

“Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga

How is it possible that still no one has written about this video!? It’s fucking redonk!

So here’s Lady Gaga’s latest contribution to pop culture. With her increased popularity she’s obviously earned a bigger budget for music videos, and damn, she put it to use. The girl doesn’t disappoint, and I’m pretty sure the biggest reason that I like her is not for her music or her genuine vocal talent, but because she’s bat-shit crazy and has intentionally made herself out to be that way to create a unique and interesting image.

Instead of being cookie-cutter cute or sexy, she’s pushing the envelope and taking her insanity to new levels all the time; she’s unafraid to be ugly and weird and wear crazy (sorta scary) outfits that make her look  like a fish or a Snork or something.  She’s a celebrity worth watching because she’s actually doing interesting stuff, putting on a show, and entertaining people, albeit in a non-traditional way.

Blah blah blah I could go on forever about all this boring sociological stuff regarding celebrity and spectacle and fame etc. What I really want to talk about is how this video is the perfect googly eyes video. It features 1) modified twisting, 2) crazy dancing with cat-scratchy paws moves, 3) a buttload of wacky outfit changes, 4) nonsensical onomatopoeia lyrics in the chorus, and 5) some very googly eyes.

Now, please discuss.
