#10 “Antidode” by Swedish House Mafia vs. Knives Party
a.k.a. One of the Craziest Music Videos I’ve Ever Seen
Warning: the music video below is NSFW.
Let the countdown begin!
As I said in my last post, I am a music video enthusiast. Even before I chose directing them as a career, I would watch atleast 15 music a week, typically ones I hadn’t already seen.
A few months ago, on my search through the mountains of foreign music videos sitting around on YouTube, I found this one below. I know there are other music videos shot in first person perspective, but this one is pretty unique.
Besides it’s great shot design, the first-person shooter type movement sucks you into the chaos with everyone in the strip club. I’d say one take, or some really awesome editing, along with the bass-booming music of Swedish House Mafia and Knife Party makes this video a must-have on any list for innovative music videos.
An epic throwdown with Japanese gangsters.
The song is by the electronica band Swedish House Mafia (yes, they are Swedish) and features/battles Knife Party.
I’m sad to say that these guys will no longer be performing together as a band. I guess you’ll have to enjoy watching this music video on repeat for their sake.
