The always groundbreaking Radiohead are well-known for making groundbreaking music videos. And their latest, "House Of Cards," is their most astounding yet, as it incredibly no cameras or lights were used in its creation. Instead 3D laser images were captured using some fancy-schmancy new technologies called Geometric Informatics and Velodyne LIDAR.
Don't expect us to explain how such laser technology works, but watch the video here and expect to be impressed:
But there's another laser video out this month that, in its own way, is just as impressive. It's "Strange Times" by the Black Keys, which features the Ohio indie duo engaged in spirited game of laser-tag:
So which video prevails in this laser video battle? Radiohead's innovation surely gives them a few bonus points...but let's face it, laser-tag is just frickin' cool.
It's up for debate which is the better video, but it's obvious to us which artist had more fun during these video shoots. Was it Thom Yorke, sitting in some imaging booth lipsynching for hours, or Black Keys men Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, who got to run around with laserguns like Ritalin-depirved 6th graders at an arcade party? Hmmm...
