New Flipmode / Bronze Video: ’56k’

July 23rd, 2012 | 2:50 pm | Video & Remixes | 29 Comments

In recent times, many have opted to fetishize VHS. The new Flipmode video went another route, and mined the 90s for every other piece of technological nostalgia, devising a Amazon Women on the Moon-esque concoction of early-internet imagery, late night TV channel guides, Jordan-era NBA clips, Baywatch?, and uh, mixtape drops. 56k loves the 90s, but is less fond of the 2000s. The only nod to the previous decade is a tasteful reutilization of perhaps the only great song to ever be in an EST video. And if you were to base a drinking game around taking a shot every time someone skates a spot on the island of Manhattan in this video, you’d end up taking around ten shots. Features Phil Rodriguez, Billy McFeely, Adrian Vega, Matt Daniels, Kevin Tierney, Shawn Powers, Joseph Delgado, Rob Gonyon, and guest tricks from others. Whether or not Bronze is an actual “company” has yet to be determined.

You can buy 56k on DVD, along with the past three Flipmode videos (Trife, Sognar, and Caviar) included on the same disc. $10 + $2 shipping, so it’s stupid not to.

Best outfit of the video goes to Phil Rodriguez: Camo pants and a tie-dye crewneck sweatshirt.

  • the flipmode obsession with the 90s is akin to the college broads’ obsession with 80’s music.. neither of the said groups were much alive during the respective eras. could explain the (accidental?) reuse of the dan the automator song, too.. all jokes aside the vid was killer
