Taking a short break from the Series of Series to bring you some randomness to kick yourself into the new year. And this year I guess all the stops are out, as last year it was a pain in the ass to find new years related stuff. So let’s get random and have ourselves a party!
Drake – The Motto feat. Lil Wayne Tyga Official Video
Alrightie, what the hell is this exactly? I’ve really never been a fan of Drake, I’m kind of in the realm of stepping back and letting him do his thing because it doesn’t really bother me, but this is just some dumb shit. First off, why is drake driving his grandpa’s convertible and second, why do I feel this is more of a clothing ad than a music video. Like look closely at how some of the shots are one. Also what kind of guy needs to have two watches on while driving? And since I’ve gone there, Little Wayne needs to drop those damn green boots and pull his pants up. This thing has been all levels of awful.
Coldplay – Paradise
Again, not exactly a band I’m a big fan of and so really never looked into the work they did, but this is just off the wall too. Not on the level as above, but more like a lot of inconsistent elements, elephant heads aside. That sign section should have been cut out as it doesn’t make any damn sense in context to anything else going on. Random works best when it’s random and not shoddy. Overall I think in the future I’ll be moving away from anything Coldplay.
Family Force 5 – Dance or Die
This video has multiple levels of being cheesy and totally awesome at the same time. And I am ashamed I keep forgetting about it. There’s so much fun that’s clearly been had in the production and all through the video. And it’s not confined to music videos either. Saw them live way back and they were totally rip-shit insane fun on stage to watch. I’m 100% sure at some point the lead singer was wearing hulk gloves. And the band has a Keytarist. All levels of win.
Two Door Cinema Club – Undercover Martyn
Welp, it seems like Ol’ Cinema Club here pretty much did a music video for the bulk of the songs they released. And this one just happened to pretty much turn out exactly as I would imagine it would. Fine good use of the beat, rhythm and pacing of the song itself to form the video. Add a bit of creativity sort of harking back to when Super Grass did things with puppets added in and you get something that sticks out. Have fun working out how they did this video, I shall spoil nothing.
