Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Sacrilege (Dir: Megaforce)
The reverse editing thing made the storyline way too obscure for me, let alone a regular youtube user.
Word of advice: do not underestimate the "regular youtube user".
random 'regular youtube user' comment:
"didn't like the video story...but who cares!! we're seeing boobs while listening YYY's, that's enough for me"
yes, this is way too obscure. and completely generic. you could recut this to almost any indie song and it wouldn't change a thing.
@budget song is titled 'sacrilege'
i think it's fitting.
Yeah, got that. Still feels like a teaser for someone's film project cut to a YYY's song. Unless you're a diehard fan of the band or an antville junkie it seems unlikely that you're going to sit through the whole thing.
But then maybe I'm just bothered that a band as visual as the yeah's sat this one out, and that a directing team known for crazy fx and transitions opted for stark realism. Its not a bad video, just not what I was expecting.
That's what you call random? LOL
megaforce have been on a narrative trip lately. they still experiment with the medium.. can't rely on the same bag of tricks all the time.
i feel it's part of a bigger trend. i'd call it 'middle american life romanticed by europeans'. mr oizo, m83..
