I really didn't know where to put this. It's more of 'interesting' video than anything techie or human condition or what?

Slow motion video captures people's faces as they get hit with tasers

and on the other side of the taser...

A 14-minute and by no means complete CV of Max Martin.  Incredible.

This one is for Mac. Not the greatest song, but I like the idea behind the video as they pay homage to the most iconic Slasher characters in cinema history.

Another awesome video by OK Go

I Won't Let You Down

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1ZB_rGFyeU

Quote
The band's creative videos have made use of treadmills, dominoes and optical illusions. In its latest, "I Won't Let You Go," the foursome takes to the road -- and the sky -- thanks to camera-toting drones and some Segway-like Honda vehicles called UNI-CUBs.

The video is nearing 3 million views on YouTube.

Part of the idea came from a visit to Tokyo's Robot Restaurant, kind of a Medieval Times with robots. ("Girls in bikinis battle enormous Transformer-style robots, helped by Daft Punk-style storm troopers on Tron motorcycles," went the description of a TripAdvisor reviewer.)

It was the best hour of my life," OK Go's Tim Nordwind told Billboard.

The band worked with Japanese director Morihiro Harano to design the 5-minute-plus clip, which begins with the group on UNI-CUBs doing some leg moves and then rises high over a building lot while the band joined by several -- and then dozens -- of umbrella-toting Japanese schoolgirls. (A choreographer named Airman handled the moves; Honda supplied the UNI-CUBs and some backing.)

Eventually the proceedings moved to a warehouse for the conclusion, a colorful display -- like a stadium flip-card maneuver -- that includes pictures of the band members and a "ribbon" showing the title of the song.

The last part took more than 50 tries and was shot at half-speed and then speeded up, the band members told Billboard. By this point, the drone camera was a half-mile up.

It's all part of a philosophy that tries to entertain as much as awe, OK Go's Damian Kulash told CNN in 2010.

"We make cool stuff," he said. "We just think they're fun."

Next up: a trip on Virgin Galactic?

Ok Go are the masters of their domain! Not that "domain", the music video domain that is. If you have been following their career long, you will see a common thread through most and that is one long, single take shot from start to finish. No cuts. No edits. But this one really made me doubt if it was shot in a practical way, especially the final shot that literally has the camera higher than any crane could possible reach. I had to read to find out that they used a drone to make it work. Color me impressed once again.

I like it...

Neat video turns juggler into human black hole

Quote
This woman totally seems like she has harnessed the power of a black hole and can suck up all the light and everything around her. But it's just a nice little camera trick showing swinging burning steel wool in reverse. The light flies to her as she twists and turn but in reality, it's just being flung away. Still nice though!

The video, called Ignition Sequences, was made by Richard Johnson as a promo spot for Cascade Juggling. Don't worry, it was safe. He explains:

    All necessary safety precautions where taken to prevent the risk of a fire. We only shot after heavy rain (Cumbria gets alot of rain) and had a team of people standing by off camera. The steel wool we used burns out really quickly which made the risk of a fire extremely minimal.

Okay, I'm currently down the Youtube music video rabbit hole and came across this video, Britny Fox's "Girlschool."


While not a GREAT video, I immediately recognized it as the basis of an actual great video, Spinal Tap's B*tch School:


Since we were just talking Spinal Tap recently, seemed like the perfect time to share.  And amazingly enough, this led to a Spinal Tap video I've NEVER seen before: "Royalty Of Rock."

Dawn Richard - Tide : The Paradox Effect


This music video for Tide: The Paradox Effect—a new song by R&B singer Dawn Richard—shows a female warrior fighting her way towards the sun in a strange world full of destruction and mayhem. The video was made by directing duo We Were Monkeys.
