House of Cards



Radiohead


No cameras or lights were used in the making of this video. Instead, we are told, "3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data."

Smart realization in which pixels create a house of cards. Excuse my literalness for appreciating the lyrics:

I don't wanna be your friend
I just wanna be your lover
No matter how it ends
No matter how it starts

Forget about your house of cards
And I'll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I'll do mine

Fall off the table,
And get swept under
Denial, denial

The infrastructure will collapse
From voltage spikes
Throw your keys in the bowl
Kiss your husband 'good night'

Forget about your house of cards
And I'll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I'll do mine

Fall off the table,
And get swept under

Denial, denial
Denial, denial

You would, Jefferson, you would.

They also had an interactive version where you could manipulate the data and create your own video. Fancy stuff Radiohead.
