All right, so I'm a video editor by day and I've had some downtime late in the afternoon recently, so I decided to mess around with some Whiskey Media videos just for fun. They're a treasure trove of dumb stuff, so here's what ended up coming out. (Spoiler: lots of dancing and weirdness.) It's a little Giant Bomb heavy cause those videos tend to be the nuttiest. Go figure! Enjoy!     

 
Update 5/25/11: Totally honored to be included in the new homepage community section. Glad they (and so many of you) enjoyed it!

Okay the editing is fantastic, I still find it hard to watch with the music though.

Conmsidering the video is edited to the music it'd be pretty fucking hard to change.

@drhans: Great job, man. Not keen on the actual tune, but that is crazily well done.

really what the fuck is that music ? sorry dude, video's real eerie


Edit: however after cringing my way though that, i noticed your editing skills and how you used each and every lick and beat to go along with fitting scenery and video bits, so good effort.
#7 Posted by MayorFeedback (685 posts) -

The song is "Dancingbox" by Modeselektor (German group).  Not sure what's so difficult about it. TTC rapping (French rap group), some beats and really cool vocal editing, like... if it's not your thing, that's cool, of course, but geez.

I really dislike the music. Nice effort, though.

@drhans:
A really good video, and please ignore the assholes that commented on the music choice and forgot to mention that you made a fantastic effort.
#10 Posted by Claude (16613 posts) -

I liked it. Those other dudes are just being rude. I thought the music matched up well with how you edited it. It was kind of catchy too. Good job.

#11 Posted by JCTango (1485 posts) -

Nice editing job man! 

It was pretty crazy and funny in a weird way... the music just adds to the weirdness heh.

@drhans: Some people are so close minded that they can't see your skills past their personal choice in music, don't worry about them. That was awesome.
#13 Posted by MayorFeedback (685 posts) -

Haha, thanks for the love, guys. Like I said, this was just something I made to amuse myself. Somebody doesn't like the music I chose? OH NO

#14 Posted by ConstantRa1n (383 posts) -

Awesome job man. Forget about the negative posts. They are jealous.

#15 Posted by IBurningStar (2194 posts) -

10/10. Fucking brilliant.

#16 Edited by cyraxible (702 posts) -

The video was great. Really goes well with the music. Great job!


EDIT: Oh man got to Will with the shake-weight. 11/10

This reminds me. I need to open the Russian Whiskey Media, Vodka Media.

#19 Edited by htr10 (484 posts) -

yeah, really great effort.  one of the best edited videos i've seen in a long while.

edit:  just re-read your original post and saw that you're a video editor by trade.  so, you cheated, but also, excellent work.

French techno rap is the official music of Giant Bomb.

Modeselektor rock! (dance?)

Forget the haters, great job man!

#27 Posted by htr10 (484 posts) -

i like how someone posts an incredible video that at least i think instantly becomes one of the signature pieces of WM community-generated content and the first 2 replies were overtly negative.  oh, the internet.
#28 Posted by crusader8463 (14744 posts) -

Sorry, but I could only watch about 10 seconds of it before I wanted to pick up the nearest sharp thin object and ram it into my ear drums just to make the noise I was hearing stop. Can't comment on the video editing.

#29 Posted by honkwas (19 posts) -

this is so awesome, great work man.

#30 Posted by Rabalais42 (47 posts) -

Great video dude. It sucks that everyone hates the music, but they probably don't matter anyway

#31 Posted by elcalavera (363 posts) -

Very, very nice! And that Will Smith... Jesus.

#32 Posted by JoMate (258 posts) -

This should be on the front page like now. Awesome work man, love it.

#33 Posted by mbkish (250 posts) -
@drhans: Awesome work dude. Not sure why people are bitching about the music; I think it is quirky enough to work.
#34 Posted by MattyFTM (14589 posts) -

The music is weird, but it's not much weirder than half of the stuff Midnight Brown does. If Jeff had made that song, everyone would be loving it. I don't know what everyone is complaining about.

Either way, it's a great, well edited video.

Its great... not sure about your music choice... Sorry.

#36 Posted by myketuna (1782 posts) -

I thought the video was good. Forget if you like the music or not for a second.

#37 Posted by macgrill122 (10 posts) -

Wow, that was awesome, great job. And I liked the music too, thanks.

What? Not a lot of people like his Music.

Now if this would be edited to a Nasum song...

#41 Posted by wafflestomp (288 posts) -

That was awesome and the music is surprisingly fitting. Good Job, Duder!

#43 Posted by Yummylee (23189 posts) -

A damn great edit job you done here, and that song started to get my foot tappin. Don't think I'd wanna listen to it outside of that video, though. O_o


Also incredi-lol at the hyperactive spazzing out of Sara,

Pretty much my feelings. The GB community is filled with self-loathing and infighting. The Screened, Tested, and Comic Vine communities are very different.

Great video by the way. I'm actually kind of a fan of that music.
#45 Posted by Lukin (29 posts) -

Video is excellent and the music's great too. 


I highly recommend Modeselektor to anyone who is into dance music, that track comes from a fantastic album, and its not all French techno rap :p
#46 Posted by GearDraxon (143 posts) -

Awesome. I was entertained right up until the Willing off at the end.


Then I cracked up.

Also: the music is perfect for it. I don't know if you noticed, but the video is insane. The choice of words from the people who "couldn't watch it" because of the music is indicative of their thought processes.
#47 Posted by Subjugation (4779 posts) -

Great job. People complaining about the music are pathetic. I think it totally fits for what you were doing.

#48 Posted by Moth_Pope (474 posts) -

People are allowed to not like the music, and pointing it out seems worth posting when the video's been put up for comments... It doesn't instantly mean they're being spiteful and rude.

Anyway, I thought the video was good. I too wasn't very keen on the music either, but when it worked, it worked perfectly (ie. the part with Will and the shake weight). Brought back some good memories! Well done.

#49 Posted by MaFoLu (1869 posts) -

Like alot of other people, I'm not really a big fan of the music, though the video itself was great.

#50 Posted by Scooper (7920 posts) -

Chill out homey rollers. People shouldn't take any notice of my writing. I barely do, lol.
