Because the Origami - 8in8

4y ago


A ninja music video made for 8in8's song Because the Origami from their only album, Nighty Night. This video was made in about seven hours. The glasses I wear are my attempt to look like Ben Folds. And the faux piano playing is my attempt to match his amazing talent. Note to self, learn piano. There are a bunch of things I wish I could change about this video, but I want to keep this in the spirit of 8in8 so all errors that make me cringe will stay! ALSO: This video was mentioned in Amanda's Blog and is listed on the 8in8 site. I nearly died when I saw.... / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / Music by 8in8 - Ben Folds, Neil Gaiman, Damian Kulash, and Amanda Palmer Vocals: Ben Folds & Amanda Palmer Piano: Ben Folds Buy the album: Amanda Palmer's blog announcing 8in8 music videos: 8in8 Site: This project is Creative Commons BY-NC.

If you hear this please we love you Tommy Please come home we've left your room Exactly Exactly And if you ever hear this song Know we send our love Take your origami skills And make a paper dove Send a message home We promise not to teach you We don't care what you've done We hope that this will reach you.. If you hear this, please We love you Tommy We won't ask you anything We won't be angry
