Typography geek Greg Solenström recently paired black and white photos of Brooklyn with Akzidenz Grotesk font and Jay-Z and Lil Wayne’s “Hello Brooklyn 2.0” for a fan made tribute that we think could work as an official video. Check it out after the jump, plus nine more of our favorite fan videos for artists like Radiohead, MGMT, and Grizzly Bear.
1. Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, “Hello Brooklyn 2.0”
2. Local Natives, “Airplanes”
Using found footage from old films and lots of jump cuts, student director William Robinette puts together a tale of love and transportation.
3. Lady Gaga feat. Beyoncé, “Telephone”
YouTube user Sleepybum682 spent more than two months recreating Lady Gaga’s epic video with characters from The Sims 2. (You can view a teaser for “Alejandro,” which is currently in the works, here.)
4. Grizzly Bear, “Two Weeks”
Gabe Askew’s fan video takes us on a journey through stark animated and cardboard cut-out landscapes; Grizzly Bear liked it so much that they reposted it on their website.
5. Death Cab For Cutie, “Little Bribes”
Using “every time lapse, stop motion and live action camera trick” that he could think of, Ross Ching, a graduate of San Diego State University’s film program, gives us a visually stimulating sing-along.
