Has this (or something similar) been done before?

Asked by Nimis (13219points) November 17th, 2008

The this I am referring to is Pop Levi’s video for their song Semi Babe.
There is Semi Babe 1 and Semi Babe 2, meant to be played side by side.

It’s a simple and clever concept.
I feel like it’s been done before, though I can’t remember any examples.
Everything’s already been done, right?

It’s particularly interesting because they also have separate audio tracks.

Never seen anything like that. Very cool!

Hmmm…really? No vague brain itch for either of you?
Makes you think there’s much to be explored with new media
if such elementary (but cool) concepts are only now being done. Hmmm…

It reminds me of something, yes… I can’t remember what. I saw it on Youtube, though, and it was a featured video.

Agh! You’re only making my brain itch even itchier!

I must be pretty unco cause I really can’t get it in time :P

maybe that’s why nobody’s tried it before, cause they know that there’ll be retarded people like me who just can’t get it right :P

It reminds me of that movie The Prestige, and the trick (the transported man) that Angier (Hugh Jackman) does with the top hat and the doors. Have you seen that?

I’ve seen commercials on TV where action proceeds through multiple ‘screens’, but never a music video (and with the audio split, too!). Very cool.

Nimis's avatar

Shrub: Haha…yes, but that’s part of the fun of it!

Lyn: Nope. Haven’t seen that movie.
How do the two relate?
Or do I need to see it to get the connection?

Aug: Multiple screens?

augustlan's avatar

Yeah…some with ‘split screen’ and some with multiple TVs or monitors in the actual commercial, where the action continues from one screen to the next.

Nimis's avatar

Oh! Like some dude reaching into another TV to steal some delicious product?!
This is starting to sound vaguely familiar…

augustlan's avatar

That’s the ticket!

The 1997 album “Zaireeka” by the Flaming Lips comes with four discs, meant to be played simultaneously on four different sound systems, creating harmonies and counterpoints, etc. As far as I know they never did the video version of this, but I’d say it’s a relevant precedent.

tigran's avatar

what if there is a mistery youtube video that you need to add to complete the song? it could be like a bonus melody.

Nimis's avatar

Kfin: Excellent example! And it sounds pretty awesome to boot.
Don’t know why I hadn’t heard of that album before.
Will definitely have to remedy that.
