Music Video Sets the World Record for Most Costume Changes in an Unedited Music Video
This may be the first and only time you listen to a song by Eytan and the Embassy, but it will be totally worth it.
Actually, you may have heard their music before and just didn’t know it. The bio on their official website states the band’s music has been featured in MasterCard commercials as well as in parody videos to promote the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
Now that you have a little background on the band (whether you wanted it or not), let’s get to the video which you may have already started watching…which means you’re not reading any of what I’m typing…which means you’ll never know that the secret to cure whatever ails you is a teaspoon of Franks Red Hot Sauce. Common cold? Frank’s Red Hot. Flu? Frank’s Red Hot. Broken bone? Rub some Frank’s on it.
Anywho, over the course of the 4 minute and 3 second video for their song, “Everything Changes”, there are 18 costume changes. If I did the math correctly (and chances are I didn’t), that comes out to a change every 13.5 seconds.
60 seconds x 4 minutes + 3 seconds = 243 seconds / 18 changes = 13.5 per second, right?
The point being, it’s a lot and it was done in one take. One more thing before you watch; each costume is an ode to a famous musician. See if you can figure them all out.
