Robyn – "Be Mine (Ocelot Mthrfckrs Remix)" Video

This particular post involves a wacky story:

I first heard this remix a few weeks back, but today I sat down with it again and decided I really liked it. I went to Ocelot's (aka Ocelot Mthrfckrs') MySpace page, and I discovered one of their two members is from Texas, which I found curious considering their sharp brand of hyper-melodic electro-trance. Oddly enough, this video popped up on Discobelle not even an hour ago.

As I watched it, I thought, "One of those guys getting punched looks EXACTLY like my friend Jason Marlow", who is incidentally an aspiring filmmaker and director. He's been in Austin for over a year now. I touched base with him, and my assumption hadn't failed me. That is indeed him getting punched, and he did indeed help direct the video.

He explained that the video features himself as well as employees from the Action Figure design firm being punched at a headache-inducing full force velocity. Each punch was shot at 1000 frames per second. (To give you an idea of how fast that actually is, most normal-speed video is shot at 24 or 30 fps.)

My explanation is a bit simpler: Here's what white people look like getting punched in slow motion.
