This heartwarming narrative video for Jamie T’s Emily Heart is shot by the musician’s regular collaborator Adam Powell.

 

 

James Frost has shot this video for new OK Go track This Too Shall Pass, which has been storming through the internet so you’ve likely seen it already. Despite its brilliant effects, we have slightly mixed feelings about it at CR, due to the obvious parallels between it in Fischli & Weiss film The Way Things Go. When Honda used a similar technique in its Cog ad, a storm of controversy ensued, but Frost’s video has only drawn admiration, that we’ve seen. Perhaps the rules regarding ‘homages’ are different for music videos compared to ads?

 

 

An ad for you now – a new spot for Jordan Brand from W+K New York, shot by Adam Berg.

 

 

Finally we end with a cute short film from Pleix. All together now, ‘ahhhh’….
