We Can't Stop Talking About…Awesome YouTube Videos

[Her Morning Elegance from Oren Lavie]

HER MORNING ELEGANCE
I set out in hopes of finding some of the best artistic YouTube videos, and really felt as if I came up short in general. Most were amateurish: lacking in technique, and interesting content. But the one above is my absolute favorite of what I have found. It was created by Oren Lavie, an Isreali artist, and really is beautiful. My favorite parts: the dancing, the wind, the fish, and the part where she is jumping from one pillow to the next (it kind of reminds me of Mario Bros).

There are a few more interesting videos after the fold. Read on! And submit a comment if you would like to share any other artsy vids…


LOST IN A MOMENT
Love it! If I was a little sushi roll, this would be my last sight. How bleak that life would be!

BANKSY PET STORE
Bansky, a graffiti artist from the UK, opened a “pet shop” in the Village for the month of October, which showcased fish sticks swimming in water, a vain bunny rabbit, mechanized hot dogs in glass cases, and my favorite–the chicken nugget chicks dipping themselves in BBQ sauce. It was created to say something about the way we view animals, food, and the things we buy. Needless to say it was very interesting. Take a look at the video!

ROB WANTS TO GIVE YOU A HIGH FIVE!
This video/social experiment should just be a reminder not to take life so seriously all the time. It definitely made me smile, and I appreciate its light-hearted nature.

CHUCK E. CHEESE AND USHER
This is basically awesome. A guy named Aaron Fetcher choreographs performance sequences of the Chuck E. Cheese Showbiz Pizza Band to some pop/techno songs of the past and present. They are timed perfectly and the combination of the strange, yet innocent figures of our childhood with the more ‘mature’ lyrics of the songs creates an interesting juxtaposition. (Please excuse any controversial language in these songs).

    Yay! When I saw the tagline “Awesome YouTube Videos,” I immediately thought of “Her Morning Elegance.” And then I saw that it was one of the ones featured! It is truly brilliant. I love it.

    This little short film is by no means wonderful, but the clothes are neat and it’s definitely artsy. (And I wrote the music. =P)
