lack of creativity

I just looked at a post that was put up about a day ago. While watching the video I saw the same exact idea that was used in a different music video. While watching the second video look for the upside-down eyes and mouth,  you’ll see. It’s about 2:40 into the video. However, I don’t feel that this video in entirety is a lack of creativity. It’s one of my favorite videos, because of its creativeness. Anyways, here you go.

    Neither of them “invented” it, the upside down eye thing is based on a physiological phenomenon on facial recognition. I don’t know the exact study or the name of the person who researched and documented it, but it has to do with the fact that when the eyes are turned upside down, we stop being able to register them as faces.

    The only reason I sort of know about it is because my boyfriend does video art and he did the same thing – videotaped people’s faces and then flipped parts of their faces around. He knows more about it than I do, but it was based on this study he found in a book. He thought he was the first to do it, so when I showed him that video he was way bummed, haha.

    Thanks for posting this video, though – Minus the Bear and Ratatat are both great and certainly don’t lack creativity musically.

    That was such a weird video (first one)…what was the point of it? It wasn’t seducing whatsoever or entertaining. Maybe if anything it was a bit humerous..for easily amused people. Is upside down eyes and mouth a new artsy way of portraying videos today?…that is interesting about the physiological phenomenon on facial recognition…interesting.

    That’s interesting that you mention that, as the that’s a video I have watched many times in the past. They’re both incredible bands but I don’t they they’re videos are very similar. Sure they used the same effect, but they work on very different levels.

    And I understand that that effect has been used many times over, but this particular video resonated with me for some reason. Probably the heady beat

    Drunk posting is dangerous business

  7. yeah, I don’t think that’s any lack of creativity, just happened to use the same element because it was cool looking or psychologically altering as the other person mentioned above. The only reason it stands out more than say, using a strobe light or something, is because it’s so unusual looking.
