Kaleidoscopic music video drags you into cool psychedelic vortex

2033 is the last single from French musician Leon. The video—directed by Thomas Blanchard—is kaleidoscopic collage of images that drags you into a psychedelic vortex of colors, shapes, and pop music. It may be too early to pop any pills, but coffee and this will have a similar effect.

Everyone Who Records Video on Their Phone Needs to Follow This Rule

I understand that when you take a picture or video with your phone, it makes a lot of sense to hold your phone upright. It's more comfortable! It's totally natural!
