Diarmuid S kindly sent me this link – I love the video and have a funny feeling you will like it too…..

and here it is in the other direction….


  1. I saw this a few days ago, but not the “backward” version. Funny thing is, in the “forward” version his walking looks more natural. Also, to me the music sounds much better when played backwards. (I’m not crazy about it in either direction, but if asked to choose…)

    1. Seth.D, you’re right! I watched the videos two or three days apart. The first time, I disliked the music. The second time, I disliked it less — and hence jumped to the conclusion that the soundtracks were different.

    1. Have not seen the movies yet (can’t see them here), but based on the images I’d say this is not Amsterdam.
      Don’t know what language I’m seeing on the buildings, but that is not Dutch.

  2. Thought the video was VERY cool. I agree with Max, though, the forward walking video I actually like better as well. I can’t believe THE Max Maven is on this web page. 🙂

    1. Hey, I immediately started hearing Yellow when I was watching this! (Can’t get sound on this machine)

  3. Let’s not forget the Belgian band Sttellla, which has some weird but well done music video too.

  4. Call me old fashioned, but if that video had anything to say, I missed it. Someone walking backward and then showing a video of it so he’s walking forward just doesn’t seem all that impressive. Sort of on parr with when you discover that you can film something with a movie camera in high school, stop the camera, remove it, and then start the camera again. Poof, the something disappeared right before your eyes in playback!

    A trick. Not really art.
