Music Videos to Brighten Your Day

It's dark and dreary here (and I will just assume it is everywhere) and people are getting shot in movie theaters. A crummy day all around. So, to avoid reality for the next 10 minutes, let's immerse ourselves in two really cool music videos.

Eytan and the Embassy - Everything Changes
I caught this video on CNN of all places. It's the last place you would expect to see one of the best music videos in recent years, but it's more likely you'll see it there than on MTV (zing!). The video set a world record for the most costume changes in one video, but the amount of costume changes doesn't compare to how well they executed the tiny impressions of David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, Bruce Springsteen, Weird Al Yankovic and 14 others. It's all one shot, and pretty flawless. And not to mention, the song is pretty damn awesome.

Walk Off The Earth - cover of Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye

This one has well over 100 million views, but I had no clue it even existed until a few days ago and I've watched it at least 10 times since. In the video, a band covers the wonderful hit song "Somebody That I Used To Know", which has been done about 100 million times before.. but this is much, much different. A five-piece band performs the entire song on one guitar. You need to see it, and looking at the numbers.. you probably already have.
