Friday Night Videos: Paper Cutouts

Eskimo Disco: Picture Perfect (2005)

Man cuts out pictures of people; people dance. I dunno, this is an interesting concept, but the execution leaves a bit to be desired. On the plus side, there’s a keytar. Keytar!

Switchfoot: Awakening (2007)

Here’s what Eskimo Disco could have done with paper cutouts — mimic Guitar Hero. The video has a story line, stuff happens, and Tony Hale (“Hey, brother”) is in the video. A far better effort than the above, and a lot more fun. But I’m sad to see what happened to the Guitar Hero interface now that Activision bought it.

(Thanks to dfan for the Switchfoot video.)
