Watch Flock of Dimes' New Video, Featuring 78 Cinematic Underwater Scenes
Bill Murray makes an appearance in the new Flock of Dimes video.
Titanic, Batman, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Castaway, The Sandlot, The Bourne Supremacy, Hook, Across the Universe, and 70 other movies with underwater scenes were cut and spliced for Flock of Dimes' single "(This is Why) I Can't Wear White." Drowning, screaming, punching sharks in the gut, heavy make-out sessions, deep-sea explosions and blood-letting are perfectly set to the buoyant streams of dream pop, courtesy of Ben O'Brien's sharp editing skill.
You may recognize these ethereal vocals as Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak as she's released a number of sweet singles asFlock of Dimes
. But despite the oceanographic imagery, I don't think this isSeapunk
, you guys, but someone will probably argue that it is.
In the meantime, see if you can count all 78 films used in the video.
