Video for The Ribs of a Broken Umbrella

Postby the bellies » Fri May 01, 2009 6:31 pm

We've posted the video for The Ribs of a Broken Umbrella on our YouTube site

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZGkL4-lG7c

Made by Jan Von Holleben. Two days spent being dragged around the floor of a studio in Berlin. Good times...

very funny. quite 80s. the bright colors, the peter gabriel videos feel to it. must have been a laugh doing it!
(and spot Paul's charming eyes, 3'17" in the video... *sigh*)

Haha I love it. True, very 80s. And somehow I'm reminded of Sesame Street, or maybe it's just that the la la la bit reminds me of the theme tune, I dunno. Anyway, it's my favourite off the album so good to see it get a video.

That's what I thought too. Peter Gabriel-ish.
But now I have a question about this photo:

I thought this photo was taken from the video, but Paul's wearing different clothes. So which video is this photo from?

What a cool video! Very creative.

Of course it's gonna be compared to Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" (can't believe that was 1986!? :shock: ) because of the stop motion animation but it's a brand new take on it and it really suits the song.

Love the bit from 3.37 when it really looks like Dom is actually floating vertically up the wall.

*Edited to say that if I had of read the origional post, I would have known the answer to my own question. :oops:

Love Jan Von Holleben's work, I'm actually buying a couple of prints of his for my house.

**Just one little note to Paul ~ was it really the wisest decision to wear white runners whilst being dragged around a floor, they look like they got filthy! :wink: :lol:

No stunt doubles. The boys have developed ninja skills.
