The Wilderness Downtown

31 Aug

I love music videos, and I’m always looking for clips with a new twist on the format. This is  the most novel I’ve seen in a long time. It’s set to a new Arcade Fire song and it uses some fancy html coding and google maps to include your childhood home as part of the video. Of course, you could pick any address you like and have it use The MCG or a hole in the ground (a nicer hole if you grew up in Moe) but the emotional effect wouldn’t quite be the same.

This is probably the first video clip ever made that would be impossible to show on television, and in that its a unique and exciting piece of film.
