A different kind of Vegas video... filmed in 2008.

Thanks to VT superfriend and VIMFP alumni Goon29 for the tweet tip.

Other than a few happy seconds, that video makes me sad.

interesting and depressing at the same time except for a few moments. i think the music is a downer.

Oh hey, It's Vegas Koyaanisqatsi.

This really sums it up. I enjoyed the visual spectacle of the place, but the day by day problems of living there slowly add up and wear the joy down until you want to leave, and every insecurity of yourself you may have can be exploited eventually.

The view from northwest 215 in particular is a spectacular sight that I used to enjoy routinely; and I'm glad somebody recorded it so that I can enjoy it without going crazy from hostile weather, inept administration, and a general feeling of being in the wrong place.

If you cut any video in slow motion to that suicide music, you'd get that. Put it at regular speed using quick cuts and the Dead Kennedy's version of Viva Las Vegas for the music and it would be a whole different vibe.

Fuck that song...why would you ever wanna listen to depressing crap like that?

Wow, I (for one, at least) really liked the video. Nice to see the other side of the coin sometimes. Although I think an obvious shot they missed was the classic Parents of the Year pushing their babies up the Strip in a stroller at 2am. Maybe they couldn't fit that one in.

George Carlin died one week after appearing in an appearance at The Orleans that is advertised in the video's penultimate shot. So, there's that.

If you squint, at the beginning of the video you can see workers not installing rebar in the Harmon.

I didn't watch this video when it was first posted, finally got around to it...turns out I'm in it...haha. I remember seeing that guy shooting and wondering what they were shooting for. The side of my head and glasses are next to the girl taking a pic of the Bellagio Fountains. Random.
