A rolling ball plays Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” on a wooden xylophone.
The viral video is actually a Japanese commercial for Touch Wood – NTT DoCoMo’s range of cellphones with wooden body panels.
I just loved watching this. Bachna Ae Haseeno (loosely translated as “Save yourself, pretty girls”) is a short film/music video, with some rather kitschy, but enjoyable Bollywood style song and dance.
The film was made by the good folks at BollyBrook, who spent four days shooting the video in the streets of Mumbai, India.
Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop.

It’s hard to believe, but its been close to 20 years since “Creep” was unleashed on an unsuspecting world. The song still speaks to me in ways that the others never could.
This literal version, stop-motion animated video for the song, was created by fastidiously putting together 1,544 photographs, shot with a Nikon D60 camera.

Rumspringa is a Los Angeles based rock band, with an exciting and distinct sound. Their first full length debut LP Sway, for Cantora Records, has been described as a "distinct brand of innovative yet relevant funky psychedelic bluesy rock n roll that’s as fresh as it is vintage, and dangerous as it pure."
On an interesting note, the digital-collage cover art of the album was designed by Joey Stevens, the band’s lead vocalist and frontman.
Their bizarre, yet brilliant animated music video for the track ‘Triptych’, was created by artist and animator Winona Reagan. She was given complete artistic freedom by the band, and the results are for all to see.
