OK Go’s stop-motion on toast

Music Photography & Video

OK Go’s latest video, “Last Leaf,” employs pieces of toast as the canvas for a laser-etched, illustrated stop-motion music video. After watching the multitude of different shapes, textures, and shades of toast pass before my eyes (15 pieces of toast per second), it begins to remind me of watching an old reel-to-reel film in elementary school, with the rough texture of the toast and surrounding crumbs mimicking those telltale visual artifacts.

    I really like this and believe it’s brilliant but can’t get through the whole video because it makes me feel a little sick watching it with all the jumpiness(is there such a word?).
    Still, very very cool.
    Reminds me of the sort of rapid prototyping they did for Coraline.

    I’m hungry now… that was really cool. I admire all the work that must have gone into that!
