70 Million

70 Million by Hold Your Horses ! from L'Ogre on Vimeo.

I'm digging this music video by Hold Your Horses, in which they tongue-in-cheekily recreate famous paintings from history. Well worth the time.

  3. I think that I got all the references except the red-and-black-checkerboard-monocle guy, the madonna-and-saints one with the big halos, and the flowers at the end; was that another Van Gogh?

  4. brossa - I think you are right about the flowers being Van Gogh now that I look at the background of it. The halos & checker were not familiar to me either.

  5. Otto Dix, Portrait of the Journalist Sylvia von Harden, 1926 is the checkberboard guy!
