So normally today would be the day where I say HAPPY FRIDAY! Here's a sweet awesome video of myself doing something for Young and Free! Well...that's not happening today unfortunately. Due to a little bit of miscommunication (like me missing part of a conference call), the video I have made is actually not ready to be released. It has to do with our big contest that we are rolling out next week! So next week, you may be spoiled and see two weekly videos instead. How special is that? The bad news is that the big reveal I have been hyping up so much is not going to actually happen until Tuesday. The good news? It's going to be well worth the wait...especially if you are a musician.
In lieu of not having an actual video, I decided to share with you some of my most favorite music videos. Some music videos just go the extra mile to bring in their fan base, and these are some that I find witty, creative and just downright awesome!
In Your Arms - Kina Grannis
Soooo I had never heard of Kina Grannis before she came out with this crazy video. The background is made completely out of jelly beans. The actual music video took two years to make, and the end result is this! Talk about dedication to making a creative video.
Buddy Holly - Weezer
Weezer's Blue Album, in my mind, was one of their best CDs that the band released. It also happened to be their first album. If you are a Weezer fan, I'm sure you remember the song, Buddy Holly. Why do I find the music video to be creative and awesome? Well, they took clips of the old show, Happy Days, and incorporated the band into the show! Anything that gives a shoutout to amazing old retro shows is good in my book.
This Too Shall Pass - OK GO
One of my favorite creative bands to date. They actually played in Maine at the Kah Bang music festival a few years back. Unfortunately, I wasn't there, but I still watch their music videos online and am impressed with each and every video they put out. Essentially each of their music videos are more creative then the last. I know that many of us have seen their treadmill video (Here it Goes Again) but have you seen their Rube Goldberg machine? It's amazing! Check it out underneath.
It's one thing to have a creative band, but it's a whole other task to create a music video that will catch the eye of the watcher. I think all three of these videos capture am amazing amount of creativity. As a side note, if you haven't guessed yet, our contest has to do with music. Stay tuned!
What are your favorite music videos?
