iTunes Eminem Ad

Recommended Posts

Guest govinda

First it was Eminem suing Apple for using 'Lose Yourself' without authorization Feb of 2005, settled in May.

 

Then it was Apple debuting a new ad for Eminem/iTunes last week.

 

Then Apple pulled it from their site on the 13th. Some claim this was what's called a 'tease.'

 

Today I saw it on TV live, so it's back among the walking and, er, chewing. First bite this zombie took was from psyop.

 

You can see it here.

(Scroll to bottom. It's the last on the right column.)

(It only works if you save it local I think.)

 

Nothing we haven't seen before since psyop's 2002's LUGZ, though it's really well done. It must be the meatiest bite yet taken from that all-time-great piece. Anyone know who did it? Did psyop do a Sheryl Crow on their own style?

not that much splattering atleast not in the sense that it would get all over the place like it does in most motion graphics.

drips are usually looked down upon as far as piecing goes. but theres nothing better than a drippy handstyle thats been done by someone that really knows how to control the flow of their marker(making it drip in the correct places so that it maintains its form+legibility but the drips add onto the over all aesthetic.) Basicly making it look messy but its still very well done.

I wasn't to big on the music edit, sounded kinda choppy...I guess you have to do whatever to make a :30 work, but it just felt weak. The mograph was great - footsteps felt a little off, but I liked his goofy dance right when he first starts rapping. The splatter transition right before that is pretty slick too.

Nice catch. For fun, google these words:

 

ipod eminem psyop

 

Motion-savvy people all over the world (Australia for example) are on the psyop-ness of it.

I feel your pain. But for those waiting for QT7 to become a safe upgrade, VLC player plays all the h.264 QTs I've tried with it. It does mean that you have to download the files before you can view them, but that means you can keep QT6 as your default and use VLC when necessary.

If I had not known of Paintdrips being widely used in mograph, I would still say it was major overkill. I didn't know that typical extreme painters with splatters that are angry listen to EM. The people that do these things probably never painted a day in there actual lives. Its like "Whoa paint. What can we do with it?" Splatt and drip. "Thats the most original thing in the world." I like paint drip when they make since to me but I think this makes him look like he actually paints with his shoes, and oh he sings too. Lets not forget some water color, because EM is a talented.
