This is awesome! Per the YouTube page, this cover is “VideoSong”, which is a new medium that has two rules:
- What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
- If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds). ← That means the head hitting the piano is a real sound and part of the video.
They also said that, “it took about four takes. but i loved every take!!! seriously, this was the most fun we’ve had in the studio together in a long time. cuz we’ve never added a story line to our videos before, so having that extra component made it really different and challenging. so much so that i didn’t mind having my face smashed into a keyboard…..”
Great job guys!
One of our users (thanks Gauth) noticed something interesting in this video. If you pause at the 25 second mark, in the bottom right corner there is a picture of a Golden Egg containing “4G”, an AT&T logo, and the text “14-9” (screen grab above). At this point, we’re still not sure if this a clue to a secret Golden Egg, an clue about a forthcoming Golden Egg, or just a red herring?
The plot thickens! Below is the response I received from PomplamooseMusic when I asked them about this.
@AngryBirdsNest I would tell you, but then I would have to kill you.
Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.
