BlackBerry Just Killed the Greatest Thing It Ever Made

BlackBerry is trying to destroy the best thing it ever made. Not the line of hardware keyboard phones, or the less-relevant-than-ever BBM service. I'm talking about the music video. That mind-blowingly earnest and inexplicable REO Speedwagon cover about BlackBerry 10. It's gone now. What the fuck, BlackBerry? » 2/05/15 12:00pm 2/05/15 12:00pm

Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler video is even weirder without music

I didn't think it was possible for that impossibly weird cage fighting nude shorts music video by Sia with Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler to get any weirder than it already was but if you remove out all the music from the video and replace it with sounds of what's actually happening, boy, it's a freak show. » 1/12/15 11:11pm 1/12/15 11:11pm

Cool SFX: Watch Zooey Deschanel dance with an invisible person

Here's the music video for She & Him's song Stay Awhile. It's a lovely stroll that follows Zooey Deschanel dancing around with an invisible person inside a bedroom, a living room and the clouds. Dancing alone is always the best since no one is watching but dancing with an invisible person looks even better. » 1/08/15 10:45pm 1/08/15 10:45pm

Cool slow motion shots from movies, TV shows and music videos in 2014

Good riddance, 2014. And to celebrate turning a new calendar year, Evan Puschak, the Nerdwriter, put together this nifty look at how movies, TV shows and music videos used slow motion in 2014. It's interesting to see all these different types of films and shows use the same effect and question if they are even… » 1/01/15 1:25pm 1/01/15 1:25pm

Murakami turned a Pharrell music video into an anime-style video game

Here's the official music video for Pharrell Williams' latest single "It Girl". It's a visual trip that combines lovely anime and nostalgia inducing 8-bit video games with the always colorful imagination of artist Takashi Murakami. It's not so much a music video as it is moving art. » 10/01/14 12:24am 10/01/14 12:24am

A Website That Warps You Back to the Hit Songs of Your Youth

Do you ever have flashbacks to that middle school dance, the one where you slow-danced to All-4-One and had your first kiss under an elm tree while Quad City DJs closed out the night. (Not that that happened to me or anything.) A dead simple but super fun website now lets you travel back to those hit songs. » 7/23/14 6:27pm 7/23/14 6:27pm

Weird Al Is Releasing a Video From His New Album Every Day This Week

The world has been Weird Al-less since 2011—it was three years ago that Alpocalypse was released, bringing us gems like "Polka Face." His new album, Mandatory Fun, drops tomorrow and he's gifting us with eight new videos, one each day this week. First up, he tackles the most parody-worthy song in recent memory:… » 7/14/14 7:00pm 7/14/14 7:00pm

Watch How OK Go Made Their Latest One-Take Optical Illusion Video

Last week, we showed you OK Go's new video, "The Writing's On the Wall," the latest in the band's series of impeccably orchestrated one-take videos chock full of optical illusions and visual tricks. Here's the behind-the-scenes look at how they did it. Short answer: it was frantically precise. » 6/25/14 11:20am 6/25/14 11:20am

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

You ever have that dream where your highschool football coach comes out on the field for a prep rally, looks you dead in the eye, and starts singing a dream pop melody from Baltimore-based indie rock duo Beach House—except he's actually Ray Wise, star of Twin Peaks and Robocop? You will tonight. » 4/23/14 12:00am 4/23/14 12:00am

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
