OK GO – Last Leaf
You have to hand it to OK GO. These guys just never seem to run out of inspiration or atleast their video directors don’t. This is their latest directed by Geoff Mcfetridge at Champion Graphics. According to a note on their website this video was made using real toast; 2,430 pieces of toast to be exact, all of them burned by a laser to create individual frames. Technical bits aside, the idea of using toast as a medium had me chuckling for quite a while. I’m sure there are a few of us out there who remember sneaking off on lazy summer afternoons with a magnifying glass and spending a few hours incinerating the odd dry leaf. Anyone for fried eggs and orange juice?
