Backwards Music Video with 600 Pillows

The music video for “My Favorite Pillow” by Rhett & Link has the same kind of awesomeness and creativity that made OK Go the kings of viral music videos. Released less than a week ago, the video already has millions of views. It’s a backwards music video in which everything is playing in reverse, but the singers still manage to mouth the words correctly. There’s also 600 pillows used in the video, which obviously creates instant awesomeness in itself.

If you’re curious how something like this is made, here’s a behind-the-scenes video that shows the forward versions of the same scenes.

It’s interesting how they lip-sync to backwards vocals to have the vocals match up when the video is run in reverse.

There you have it — inspiration for a creative way to go about making your next video.
