ANTVILLE AWARDS 2005: Best Video


What is the best video of 2005?


here's tocotronic more Antville favorites here

otaku - house, December 13, 2005 at 7:20:33 AM CET

Damn guys, what happened to my Decemberists video, "Sixteen Military Wives"???? It's at least as good as any hype or jonze video this year!

Anyone can come up with an idea, but it takes a true talent to master it. Wes wishes he could match my shit.

Come on, 2005, the year of the otaku-house!

  1. add decembrists vid (self-nominated is fine)
  2. put the poll in the body of the post.

Otaku, how about a little bit of modesty man. First you brag about how you're pushing all these sexual boundries in film school (, and now this?

It's obvious you and Wes Anderson have some weird competition going on (whether or not he knows that, I'm not sure), but shamlessly pushing your own hacktacular video for best of the year? I'm sure your Japanese grandfather would be very dissapointed.

captainmarc22, December 13, 2005 at 7:55:06 AM CET

it's a fake otaku. Jeez, he really made a determined enemy with that levy thread.

toe47, December 13, 2005 at 8:05:46 AM CET

the music review site has a pretty dandy list of its top 5 vids this year (of which only supergrass made this list). the jason forrest video is outstanding, and the others surely dont dissapoint.

HEY I just turned comments back on - Disregard the stuff before this comment. We accidentally left off the Decemberists vid and Rubber Johnny from the initial poll. Fault Progosk and myself, please.

Meanwhile, it looks like Rubber Johnny is winning so far! WOO-HOO!! Go Chris!!

otaku-house., December 13, 2005 at 9:57:44 PM CET

You know what, on second thought, the Decemberists video is a piece of shit. Please remove it from the list of best videos and place it on the list of 'shittiest, uninteresting indie videos of 2005' lis please. Thank you. I'm off to surf the web!!

drpanda97, December 14, 2005 at 1:34:31 AM CET

What was that video that had the psychadelic, hand drawn animation in it?

the-blues, December 14, 2005 at 4:34:03 PM CET

hey otaku:

just read your comments on the levy string. i think the only reason people have been trashing you is cuz you came off like a dick. to be honest, people have been pretty creative in how they've been making fun of you, had a good couple of chuckles.

fellfromthesky, December 15, 2005 at 12:23:36 AM CET

The validity of this vote is about as reliable as a Florida election count. This should be called "Antville #1 Video of a director voting repeatedly for himself Award 2005".

Some of you guys should really slow down, it's getting a bit obvious don't you think?

progosk, December 15, 2005 at 12:42:23 AM CET

so true: cut it out, willya, mr. cunningham?

captainmarc22, December 15, 2005 at 2:13:07 AM CET

morningwood 'nth degree' - how'd that get on there? kev can you take it off? i dislike it even more now.

kevathens, December 15, 2005 at 2:36:40 AM CET

Haha nope once the poll is posted, you can't do a thing. I'm not sure what Morningwood is doing there either ;) C'est la vie

Glad and surprised Rubber Johnny got some votes, there.

I closed both polls since the votes will probably come from non-regulars now..? Anyone argue for re-opening them? That can be done too.

kevathens, December 15, 2005 at 2:41:30 AM CET

It's fair to say Carpark North won this, with Rubber Johnny in for 2nd..? I'm still confused by the Mew thing, though I love Jaron's work..

jva, December 15, 2005 at 3:56:27 AM CET

run-off between the top 5 or 7, maybe?

1manguy, December 15, 2005 at 7:01:51 AM CET

hey folks, it was I who mentioned the Morningwood video along with several others in that original thread. yeah, I enjoyed the video and thought it was pretty clever but it didn't get me vote for best of the best. at that stage we weren't actually nominating anything, just doing a casual "best of" list. and I really had no idea that every video I listed would end up being placed in this poll. sorry

toe47, December 15, 2005 at 8:32:25 AM CET

"I closed both polls since the votes will probably come from non-regulars now..? Anyone argue for re-opening them? That can be done too."

whats with that elitist crap?!? you dont want opinions from "non-regs"? isnt this site supposed to be for open discussion? i didnt know it was a club.

familiar, December 15, 2005 at 8:35:03 AM CET

I think it's fairly easy to rig a vote like this with such a small readership. Hell, get your friends, agent, and family to vote for you and you've got it down ;)

najork, December 15, 2005 at 10:01:09 AM CET

The year in not even over yet.

zerocross, December 15, 2005 at 1:43:27 PM CET

Damn ... I saw this post too late.

Its too bad that you forgot the Jason Forrest - Warphotographer video.

I dont like the song but the visual experience of the winning video is really good.

kevathens, December 15, 2005 at 1:56:41 PM CET

I agree on that Jason Forrest bit. That's a really fine vid.

toe47: I agree it seems elitist. Please take this whole thing with a grain of salt and some good humor. I don't think this matters a whole lot, it was just good fun. And anyway, the Carpark North vid was highly-praised on Antville, while the Morningwood didn't fit the spirit of the place, really. Sorry if I offend with that judgement, but I think most readers here would think it a fair one??

Also, the Morningwood vid got a suspicious jump in the last couple hours the poll was open. It was lagging at around 3 votes earlier that afternoon.

kevathens, December 15, 2005 at 2:03:21 PM CET

UPDATE: This vid also just won the RESFEST audience choice award.

pressrecord, December 17, 2005 at 10:49:19 PM CET

so shouldn't MORNINGWOOD be the winner? 11 votes over CARPARK NORTH's 9...? oh, right, USA.
