The Rapture - "whoo! alright - yeah... uh huh" - Dir. Ben Dickinson
This is one of the funnest/best videos i've seen in a while.
Damn you/Love you waverly...
Fun video. makes we want to move to Brooklyn and start a band. Great clip.
Seriously out-of-control good. Prompted me to immediately send to everyone I know, buy the song online, and send an e-mail to the Waverly's, all in about 10 minutes. Can't say that a music video's done that to me in a very long time.
That's it. Ben, you've got it. 100% pure love.
Just for the record, their new album is really fucking good. Worth purchasing for anyone who likes this. The schoolhouse rock aesthetic is a nice touch. I personally found it ridiculously dorky/cute that the band created their own choreography for the end part.
nice. great track. great video. the tone is on the money and most importantly its FUN!
damn this is a good album! good video too!
looked really ghey to me.
great work, the singer is fucking cool
the song is really great. i'm pretty disappointed by the video. Doesn't look like much thought went into it - looks like a summer camp video with better production value. Maybe thats the intention, but seems like a shame to me considering the song.
dynamic, fun, fresh...good job ben
i watched this video on tv there a week or two ago and thought to myself ...hmm this could be a Waverly. And it was! Cool video . can i ask what was this shot with? it looks great....
boy that could: simple 16mm
This is exactly what living in Brooklyn is like. Walking to Ben's house is like walking down Sesame Street.
ben owns a house?
shit he's hit the big time
By "house" I mean shitty rat infested warehouse, of course.
there is one thing that is wrong with this video.... the guy with who holds up that red bit of satin like a flag- more camp than cool!
the cape? isn't that a lethem ref?
this is out-of-control great.
(oh, while you're here thetilla: anything on this?)
Its worth pointining out that the animation and illustratiuon work was done by Wyeth Hansen who also did the rad Mobius Band video posted a few months back. Wyeth RULES!
worth pointing out further that Ron Winter who worked with Ben on the Supersystem video animated as well and was the one who brought Wyeth on board. Good guy
What a way to deflate what could become an easily parodied goth-emo-tronic band and turn them into real, fun loving, ice cream eating funsters. It sort of turns into a Pringles/Coke/Beer/Gap ad for a spell but who cares? They're having fun, not being cool. That's a revolution in itself.

Waddup Wyeth, Nice one !
Really cool/catchy video. The part about people dancing cracked me up because it's true.
i vote for this
