This is the video that Chris Bliss started in, juggling to a beatles track (cant remember which) Must be where norman cook/Jon watts saw it as well. Hes very talented.
They have a video competition on the site too: "Can you juggle to music like Chris Bliss? If Fatboy Slim thinks so too then he'll pick your juggler video to be the winning video that will feature on the enhanced version of the second single to be released from the Greatest Hits album this Summer."
I know quite a few jugglers, so I'd probably enter if I wasn't so busy right now.
bit of a pop-tarts solution for a video... no, jon?
(throw "bliss diss" into utoob for a challenger. oddly enogh, though he's a killer juggler, bliss is more enjoyable.)
although, the juggling is cool. that got old real quick.
you have to be fucking kidding me. just an aging piece of shit juggling? this proves how soft the waverly people have become. they're just shitting out videos to snatch up another fat paycheck from fatboy.
Is "pop-tarts" a good thing or a bad thing? Pop tarts are great when you are late for school and need a tasty breakfast on the go.
Also, why don't you just say who you are salad fingers, rather than talk nonstop garbage?
Yeah, I'm sure Waverly made a fortune off this. I hear they wipe there ass with $100 bills now. Waverly are the new Brett Ratner.
dickensian, hijed, ford - is there more to this story? From what I've read, this is the pitch; and the real video will be when they get the word out and shoot the rest of the jugglers, right?
pop-tarts = instant-"food" to keep you comfortably numb until about the fifth, by then rather cloying, bite, with which you begin to question 1. the pseudo-ingredients they're made from and 2. the level your own taste is prepared to stoop to...
look, progosk -- if you want a Chris Bliss autographed tennis ball, just ASK.
Also, pop-tart fun:
Can you say Spike Jonze rip off?
Its obvious that they're trying to go for the "Praise You" video feel - but this is ridiculous, and a bit too forced. Good thing they used a handicam, otherwise the jig would have been up!
i want a chris-bliss-autographed pop-tart.
I'm shocked you don't like Pop Tarts, progosk. Brown Sugar Cinnamon is sooo hott!
This video is not, though. Jon has a lot of explaining to do, or Kellogg's coupons to give. Either/or.
There is SUCH a story behind this video... but I can't tell it. YET.
go on big man - spill the beans
hijed + hass: what is it?
Kev, though it seems to be down now, at one point smugglersite had posted an entirely different version of this video (with 4 BALLS).
pop-tart extraordinaire: www.youtube.com
Progosk's [above] link includes talent (pop tart or otherwise) that outshines both Watts and Bliss and their respective collaboration in every way.
hijed, hass, naj, etc: Since we apparently don't have the whole story behind this yet, let me conjure: As you can see in prog's find, what would make this a noteworthy video is if, as is maybe suggested by the 'contest', everyone and their brother makes juggling footage, and then either 1) it all gets edited into a joyous, humanist commentary on the current state of the world or 2) as an artistic statement in itself, in a way, we witness a spawned viral juggling music video movement - yet another example of mass entertainment becoming exactly that. (Looong after You Wrote It, You Watch It ;) )
?? Hate to strip any remaining fun from this vid, but: What's the story?
#1, of course, is also being done by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. And I know it's been done before but I haven't turned my brain on.
