A little metal for #457

Not only is this a bastardization of video assignment 457, but it’s also kind of a cheat since I did this video a handful of years ago.  But I’m not a student, and I’m not working for a grade, so I get to do what I want to do.

The rules guidelines for video assignment #457 read like this:

Take a favorite cartoon or anime like show, take some clips, mash them together and add music to it. Try to pick out a specific theme in your clips that follow the theme of the music. Keep an eye out for changes in the music and plan your clips accordingly.

Here’s my interpretation:

I met some of the criteria.

Anyways…  Battlemaster is a Richmond black metal band.  They are wonderful.  Some of the sweetest guys you’ll ever meet.  Back in 2007 they put out Warthirsting & Winterbound, which included the song, “This Mead Is Making Me Warlike.”  When played live, this song really rallied the audience.  It was met with singing, the raising of PBR cans in the air, and sometimes the tossing of said PBR cans.

I took the song and mixed it with public domain footage from Archive.org.  I haven’t looked at this video in years.  The assortment of clips is truly, truly bizarre.  So here we go:

Thanks, DS106, for making me pull this project off the shelf.

  1. Allright, we love it when people make up their own rules, although, for any enrolled students, let it be known you cannot contribute previous work for credit 😉

    It’s an awesome combination of the hard driving metal and the mix of cartoon and old films; one of my favorite spots is where the movement in the cartoon truly matche sup with the guitar solo.

    What I usually ask here is to write a bit more about the story you told here; what is the context? Who is the drunk boy you got away with manslaughter? Why are so many people drinking mead? Is PBR more dangerous?
