    I can't even get over how amazing this song and video is. It reminds me of the video that Roy Raz directed to the song In This Shirt by The Irrepressibles:

    RichDoors is pretty cool too but to me the Lighthouse video is the epitome of art.

    I could go to my local dump and come out with a costume like that as well, does not make it "brilliant" just different.

    Sorry, don't see anything in it brilliant, amazing or even entertaining about it.
    Different tastes I guess.

    The carafe with the carrot juice the guy is holding is part of the standard service of a silver coffee set. It is placed on a stand over a lit candle to keep the coffee warm while it's not in the silver teapot. I understand creative appropriation better than anyone, but it really bothered me that they used it in this context with juice because it blatantly reads like someone found it and were like 'oh cool let's use this as a cool looking decanter!' without knowing what it was.

    That is all.

    The music sounds like a cassette tape that was left in the sun then played. Or better, an 8 track tape. Yes, its probably their "style" but I find it annoying to listen too.

    Nothing about the visuals except the guy in red/mauve/pink/whatever is creepily like the burger king bobble head.

    Anyway, viva la difference!

    Each character in the video represents a song on the album being released in June. The group has what they call the NewVillager Mythology, which is basically like their philosophy on art.

    I'll post it in the OP as well.

    They use a lot of random props for uses that they clearly weren't made for.
    E.g. broom ends as shoulderpads at 1:45 and the guy shaking a mop full of dust at 2:37.

    I'd like to see you try. Most people don't have the creativity to put things like this together and actually pull it off to its fullest potential.
