A short break this week from GIF of the Week so’s to have a look at my nominee for Video of the Year. I don’t often post material without some carnal angle – ’cause that’s what we’re here for, right? – but very occasionally something so entrances me that I can’t resist. The Cities of Light post was one such, and the Holiday Lights post was another.
This is yet another, my nomination for video clip of the year, and it is simply sublime. The creator has not titled it other than using the sound track name, so I entitle it Sublime. The sound track is ღ Aloha Ke Akua by Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People. More details after the clip.
You can download that music track for free from Nahko’s Soundcloud channel.
So the clip was created by “some guy” Nino Canino, who goes by the moniker SailinJerry on YouTube. He put together and edited video clips by Mexican cinematographers Pedro Torres y Diego Pernía who made the original video of places in Mexico.
Their original footage was used for a series of commercials called “Estrellas del Bicentenario”, which was part of the Bicentennial celebration intended to reflect the natural beauty of Mexico to the world. It aired in 2010 on Televisa. Then he added the Nahko music track. Props, brother!
