A reader(listener?) suggested this video to me, suggested the video was like a mashup…I’m a sucker for well made videos (although the hype around the OK Go one means I haven’t posted it) but this is a new band Hold Your Horses! and their amazing video for ’70 Million’ using a massive collection of artworks for their guide. Must’ve taken ages – and if you’re tired of remembering your Van Gogh from your Vermeer the list is here.
I don’t think it’s a mashup though…;-) To mashup would take the paintings and change them, rather than copy them in a different format, closer to a cover…still really clever though. It got me at the Raft of the Medusa, brilliant idea for a chorus!
