What a Savages Concert Looks Like Through a Welder's Mask (NSFW)

Between the light display, the gyrating performers, the overwhelming wall of sound, and that 1/8th of shrooms you just gobbled, sitting through a full concert without freaking out can be hard these days. But with director Giorgio Testi's wickedly tight cropping, your eyes and mind stay focused right where they should… » 5/15/14 12:00am 5/15/14 12:00am

Everybody's Favorite Nightmares from High School All Rolled Into One

This Fractured Fairy Tale of French Fantasy Will Haunt Your Dreams

Moongai, the Electro Pop duo out of Nantes, France has a new album coming out. But rather than play a single track all the way through to show off their musical chops, the band instead performs a bit of each in their surreal music video. But as with all dreams, not everything in these fanciful visions is as it seems. » 4/16/14 12:00am 4/16/14 12:00am

A music video of The White Stripes without the music is so awkward

Here's another classic musicless music video by Mario Wienerroither. This time, it's The White Stripes' The Hardest Button to Button that gets stripped of its audio and remixed with empty noises to sound like real life. It's a lot more awkward and a lot less revolution rousing! Like two kids playing for change in a… » 3/11/14 10:39pm 3/11/14 10:39pm

This amazing magic eye music video hides fun secret moving images

Remember how frustrating those Magic Eye images were when you were a kid? It seemed like everyone but you could see the hidden message. Until you figured it out and rubbed it in everyone's face that they couldn't see it. This video by Young Rival is just like those Magic Eye pictures only it turns the whole hidden… » 1/31/14 8:06pm 1/31/14 8:06pm

Watching music videos without the music is pretty damn funny

This is genius. Mario Wienerroither replaces the music from popular music videos with imagined sound effects and noises of what's actually happening in the music video. If you see someone jumping around, you'll hear jumping around and not the song. The result? An awkwardly funny mashup of artists dancing by themselves… » 1/29/14 12:22am 1/29/14 12:22am

Music Video Shows Singer's Crazy Retouching Transformation

Deep down we all know that every photo, everything we see on TV, and every movie that hits the silver screen has been digitally retouched, tweaked, and perfected. Most of the time those enhancements are kept secret, but directors Bálint Nagy and Nándor Lőrincz have put them front and center in their video for Boggie's… » 1/20/14 9:27am 1/20/14 9:27am

Michael Jackson's Thriller Epically Performed with Stop-Motion Lego

If you don't care about the Mileys and the Biebers like most sane humans of this world, one of the most iconic music videos to you is probably Michael Jackson's Thriller. Or maybe Billie Jean. Or is it Smooth Criminal? Beat It? Actually, it can be five more MJ creations. But Thriller is somethin'. And it's even more… » 10/09/13 1:00am 10/09/13 1:00am
