I heard this song for the first time today, and I have to say, it’s flippin’ fantastic.
My fresh obsession with this song has a weird double-intensity because of the video. Allow me to explain.
When I was in college, I took a photography class. I can’t even remember what the assignment was… in fact, I may have just done this for fun, but I painted a backdrop and then painted my face in a similar pattern and took a series of self portraits. I know it’s not like I invented the art of acrylic camouflage, but I feel a kinship to this video, because it’s basically a grown-up, well-executed version of what I was trying to pull off when I was 19 years old.
So, bravo, Mr. Gotye, Sir. Good work. (Much better work than I did in the darkroom about 10 years ago, as you can clearly tell. Y’all quit judging me.)
P.S.: This picture freaks Zack out. He’s going to be super excited that I put it online where he had to see it again. Bwa ha ha.
Thanks for the link to the song, Miq.
