It would be one thing if this video from Sebastian Desmedt was just a way to show off a well-executed split-screen trick. It’s quite another that this moody montage ends up feeling like its own unique, urban portrait. Yes, it’s eye-candy, but eye-candy can be tasty, too.
OMG Fraggles! As a lover of all things Muppets, Fraggle Rock was pretty much the highlight of my week as a kid. So obviously, I was super excited when I stumbled across this video. The media brainchild of former MTV personality Chris Hartwick, Nerdist, poured their talent and nerd cred into producing this exclusive video for Ben Folds Five’s new album. In case you were wondering, yes, you’re right. It has been forever (13 years) since Ben Folds released a new track, making them almost as much of a throwback as the Fraggles. But who cares? They “Do It Any Way.”
Before this video even has the chance to prove it’s ‘fucking awesome’ in rolls a Delorean. Wait, what? But it gets better. Macklemore rocks some serious second hand furs and footie pajamas while spitting out the glories of thrift shopping. Admittedly, the clothes featured in this video do err on the outrageous(ly awesome) side. But, when you look this hipster chic, who cares if your wearing granddad’s clothes (they ‘look incredible’).
A karaoke classic sung by just about every awesome movie character you can think of.
Watching for the first time (of 20), I cheered for a few more random cameos including cartoon Batman and Professor Farnsworth. I must say, this masterfully crafted mash-up that took someone a very long time to piece together. According to the video description, Sir Mix-a-lots’ booty-shaking anthem is layered with clips from almost 300 movies.
Bonus cool: if you turn on the close captions you can see exactly what movie each clip is from.
Garfunkel and Oates has been featured on HSA a couple times before, so we’ll assume you’re well familiar by now and just jump to the meat of the post where they play the same woman, 2 years apart.
I’ll give this a NSFW tag due to language, but really your coworkers will probably laugh alongside you.
Or possibly cry.
Dubstep Warning: If you are not in the mood to club it out, you may want to hold on to this one for a midday pick me up.
The track is Delta Heavy’s ‘Get By’ and I know nothing about this type of music. But watching the games I played as a kid come to life and ‘dance’ to the beat makes this video worth a watch.
