I don't have much to say about this one except watch it! Thanks to James for sending us the link.
Earlier this year, Toronto's City and Colour teamed with Gord Downie to release Sleeping Sickness - the second single off of C&C's sophomore album. Not only is it a great song, but they created an amazing interactive video to go with it. Essentially, the viewer is given an omniscient perspective looking down into a neighbourhood of decapitated houses. Using simple keyboard and mouse commands, the viewer can scan over different houses zooming in and out to find Green and Downie (among others) stricken with, shall I say, sleeping sickness.
Well as of this very moment, it has been watched 2,565,263 times. What about this one?
It has been watched 2,874,420 times. These videos, and many more like them were created by Corey Vidal, a 21 year old amateur dancer and official YouTube partner who hails from Hamilton, ON. The first video features Corey lip-syncing the four different acapella parts of a song entitled, "Star Wars." The song was originally created as a tribute to John Williams by Utah-based comedy group, Moosebutter, and given to Corey in order to produce what you see here. The second video was created to satisfy one of the numerous requests he gets from his estimated 15-20,000 visits a day. So what's so special about Corey?
Warning: Nudity and silly sex talk.
