The king of video remixing, Eclectic Method, has brought its chopped and screwed skills to the biggest movie of the year, Guardians Of The Galaxy. The comic sci-fi epic makes a nice fit for the remix considering it’s already iconic soundtrack and sample-ability of “I am Groot.” Electic Method manages to work Redbone’s Come and Get Your […]

2001: A Space Odyssey is the best movie of all time. We love Eclectic Method here at ANIMAL, so the prospect of them turning their music/video remix skills on the space epic was destined to be great. And indeed it is. They cleverly weave the score in, along with their trademark dialogue sound bites. There’s […]

James Van Der Beek has always been a little creepy looking, Katie Holmes got real weird with that Scientology thing, but dachshunds are always worth watching. Dachshund’s Creek is filmmaker Michael Immerman’s remix of Dawson’s Creek, the beloved/reviled teen dramedy, with canines handling all the over-acting duties. Who knew wiener dogs could look so angsty? […]

The newest remix video by Eclectic Method features Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers. She is the best because she isn’t an unrelatable overachiever with perfectionist neuroses (ahem, Lisa Simpson, ahem) or simply exists to justify cold-hearted malice aimed at awkward teenage girls (ahem, Meg Griffin, ahem). She writes erotic fiction about zombies. She likes butts. She makes horrible sounds. Here they are, […]

In “Ads Libitum,” French artist David Redon replaced Uncle Sam with André 3000 and Rosie the Riveter with Kanye West in classic American political posters. His vintage magazine ad remixes have these nice little hand-drawn details and meticulous digital flourishes, all for the sake of hip hop lyrics puns in an advertising context. Dirt Off Your Shoulders shampoo or So […]

For his latest video remix, Eclectic Method takes on that wisest of Jedi masters, Yoda, slowing down his usual high-BPM frenzy for a dubby, chilled-out track. Watch it in all its bass-heavy glory above. […]

The latest video from the Eclectic Method samples Matthew McConaughey “inspirational” chest thump routine that weaves itself throughout the most frattiest moments of The Wolf of Wall Street. Warning: “This video contains NSFW drug abuse to a tribal chest thumping capitalist tribal chant.” And this cultural run-off has the best backstory. It wasn’t even in the script. […]

Leonardo DiCaprio’s rousing speech as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street just got more rousing, if you’re into Swedish extreme metal. Behold, the Messhugah mash-up version. Really brings out the performative nuances of DiCaprio’s screaming face and that dark camaraderie of the whole chest-pounding/chanting routine, which wasn’t even part of the script, but something Matthew McConaughey does before his scenes […]
