Ftwii music video

Re: Ftwii music video

lol my mind is blown after watching that. it makes other dmb videos seem normal. lol the only thing i expected from it is that it would freak me out, and that it did.

Really uninteresting video. I thought Eh Hee was awesome, but this is pretty lame.

They did say how no footage of NYC Grand Central was used, so they were probably filming the video for 'Why I Am' when they were there.

Re: Ftwii music video

There's a lot of beating around the bush with certain topics on this forum. Let's be honest, this music video is poor. You can give the line of bullshit regarding artistic interpretation, creativity, etc, but this video is a total let down.

Re: Ftwii music video

weak. The song deserves/needs a video that reflects the story in some form. Even just having this be a live concert video would have done this song more justice.
This looks like it was put together very quickly...maybe after axing a previous video attempt?

Re: Ftwii music video

yeah i was not impressed. i feel like it has to be dave just fucking with us. there didn't seem to be any point to it.

however, the first shot of dave sitting at the table did make me laugh.

Re: Ftwii music video

the first thing I thought after watching was Dave thinking "I hate this pop song, why's it on the record, I am going to make an ass out of it on the video"

I don't see how people say it is uninteresting. If you don't like it, that's fine. But it is very interesting to me.

Well that's fine, but any time you are ready to step into the grey area with everyone else on this thread, it'll be here waiting for you.

Re: Ftwii music video

That was a pretty big let down. This style of video worked for Eh Hee but clearly doesnt work for this song. It started out ok but quickly turned weird and left me very disappointed. Clearly one of the worse DMB videos in my opinion. Oh well its just video.

Re: Ftwii music video

Very strange. I liked the Eh Hee vid. This just seems like a lame knock off that one. The same techniques but not as interesting. And it made more sense since dave recorded eh hee on his own.

I would prefer a live video. I imagine/hope a vid for a future single will have footage of or tribute to Roi.

It was fun and odd... it seems a bit like "What Would You Say." But... I like the WWYS video better.

Re: Ftwii music video

like I said in the other thread, "did Dave spend a day in my brain???" With what and how I think, it's fused with seriousness and complete lunacy. It's how I would think after drinking a couple of Mountain Dews and watching the Daily show and Colbert Report, followed by an episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
