ROB CANTOR - ALL I NEED IS YOU (music gif-video)
Rob Cantor is releasing his first solo album on 4/14/14. In anticipation of this, he’s released THREE songs so far, two of which have full-length music videos for them, neither of which are anything less than beautiful.
Here’s the latest of the two, for the song “All I Need Is You”. This video is made up of looping gifs. Many of these gifs were shot specifically for this video, even though they appear as though they came from movies or TV. There are a few non-original scenes, of course, but not many.
The magic happens when you realize the characters are mouthing the chorus of the song within the looping gif.
Then more magic happens when you see some familiar faces sprinkled in the mix. (And a subliminal message?)
Rob also sent out an email asking his “street team” for as much help promoting this video as possible. Not surprising. This video is RIPE for internet virality (then again, you never know what will go viral and what won’t *COUGH*shialabeouf*COUGH*). So it looks like Rob is not just nonchalantly putting this album out there for fun. Let’s give him a hand, shall we?
