Jack White “Lazaretto”

The MTV Video Music Awards nominees have been announced and some of the contenders are videos that I have featured on this blog before so I’m pretty psyched about that. Those include:
DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What”
Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”
Arcade Fire’s “Reflektor”
Sia’s “Chandelier” Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead”
Lorde’s “Royals”
Tyler the Creator’s “Tamale”
Disclosure’s “Grab Her”.

Also, compared to last year’s lacklustre list of finalists, this year actually presents some cool new videos in the various categories. This video by Jack White for his title track “Lazaretto” is nominated in the Best Visual Effects category. Directed by Jonas & François, its a black and white ride through some awesomely designed frames, including some expertise with glass screens. Very meta.
