New Gotye “Easy Way Out” Stop Motion Music Video

Have you ever wanted your boring, dreary and mundane life to be the subject of a music video? Probably not. Directory Darcy Prendergast has put together a stop motion music video depicting the daily life of millions of workers around the world. Darcy’s direction has brought us a rather impressive peiece of cinematography showcasing the round-and-round monotouonous daily routine of my office worker life. The music video features the new track “Easy Way Out” by Gotye. What’s most impressive about this piece does not come from the constant motion, but the level of detail when you pause the video. Each piece of the set was crafted with care and shows the level of technical prowess from the modeling team.

Take a look at the stop motion awesomeness below as well as some choice stills from the video.
