This.  Let's point out for the rest of the audience that we are talking about a Cibo Matto video.

Ok. But really, what are we talking about here? One guy walking backwards? Everybody else, including the Steadicam operator, were going forward. He wasn't hitting particularly precise marks, so I'm not all that impressed with the timing (the delay in the bottle handoff put him behind schedule for the card table; the bikers sat there waiting for their cue). I guess good on him for being able to walk backwards without looking or tripping (except on the picture frame), but he did have train tracks and a curb to keep him from drifting too far off course Beyond that, what am I missing?

The big mirror that the camera crew were holding, so that he could see behind him.

My favorite episode.

I know we're supposed to hate Coldplay and everything, but, "The Scientist" did this years ago. The video even features Chris at the beginning/end on a mattress, kids riding bikes around him, etc.
 
2013-03-19 05:20:28 PM
I would have been impressed had the bike riders been going forward.
 
2013-03-19 05:29:32 PM
Sorry guys that was till pretty cool... Even knowing what it was, I kept expecting him not to "pick up" the next batch of playing cards on time. Part of it's because he's figured out a backwards gait that doesn't look like it's backwards...

Of course, you could all do better, this IS fark, after all...

Those, plus the Crapplay video has him singing  forwards - i.e. he was lip syncing the lyrics backwards during filming. This was an astoundingly bad link, Subby, and you should feel bad.

I said I knew what the deal was, it just always looked like he was going to miss the next pile of cards. I didn't say that I actually believed it.

I kept forgetting that he was going backwards and wondering why he was walking funny.
 
2013-03-19 08:14:12 PM
Well it certainly looks like it was shot in reverse.
 
2013-03-19 09:08:54 PM
I'm pretty sure that it was actually shot forwards, and then reversed in video editing software.

Otherwise, the cameraman would have to be President Obama in his Magical Time Machine.

What was the secret trick that they were talking about that I was supposed to marvel at?

Neat-o.

And if you watch it long enough, the Israelis tear down the Security wall and leave Palestinian territory.

I liked it - I stopped the video to find out what it was.

"White Lies" by Fred V & Grafix.

The only person in that video that did their part correctly was the guy with the broom.
