Hi last night I was  honoured to be shown the video for "They Do It" by Mattias......  it is STUNNING... beautifully shot... its kinda like a small trailer for a horror movie and with the dark scenes and the chiming bells in the backing track a tad reminiscent of The Exorcist trailer .... Its very atmospheric and fits the song so well.... now its a complete package and everything falls into place... could things be any more perfect??   JUstw ait till you see it.. you won't be dissapointed.... :lovevac:  :lovevac:

I have just watched hi-fi They Do It video for the sixth time.

:bigeyes:
Video is really amazing!!!
I discovered for myself that Mattias is not only good singer, but a talented actor as well! He played this madman tremendously, especially when he shouted just not ME-E-E-E!
About the video itself:
Raindrops falling from Ks hand to asphalt remind me the cartridge-cases falling down from helicopter in Matrix. Ecxellent work.
Of course, there is a wonderful sequence when coffee stir in a cup by the will of K standing out of the house. :good:
A very interesting moment (which I didnt catch when I saw the video for first two times) is the one when K stops the rain and then let it go again by raising and lowering his hands.

Once Ive hear the full song in good quality (even as mono :( ) I changed my mind about it. Now I like it. Yes, really like it, even in spite of the fact I still cannot understand what is the chorus about :wink: (WHO are They and WHAT do they Do again)

So, now Im waiting for new single, album and concerts in Saint-Petersburg even more impatiently.

Great thanks to Vacuum, K, Mikael Abbhagen and all the staff for such perfect work!

See  I told you.. the video would be stunning... I stayed up watching it about 20 times last night after mattias previewed it to me.. very atmospheric... great cinematography.... and lots of small images that you mis the first time around... and how well it fits the song... now Vacuum are STRONG contenders to sweep to the top of the charts....

I liked the video. Dark and gloomy, just in the right way for the song. And I agree with Aniv, Mattias really suited the role perfectly and acted it out very well.
On the whole the video somehow reminded me of the 'Seven' movie, especially the shots before I watched it. I don't know why though. And I thought it must be more scary but it turned out to be kind'a 'light' in a way.
Anyway, good job!

The room in the video reminds me one Swedish book, where a woman killed herself (I mean suicide), she hit her head by wall, it was difficult, but she did it. They do it, they did it, they do it again=)

But the video is really really great, and the same about the song.

PS Did you see that lavatory pan? Brr, I wouldnt like to live in that room=).

So long I couldnt make me describe my impressions of this video And now its not easier than before Ill just try a bit.
Indeed it is excellent as a video-work. Perfect light. Well-done video-editing. Expressive sequence of scenes and images. Full of meaning.
It doesnt remind me anything but the video TheyDoIt itself (just maybe the falling cup). And I think its good. I mean its good that I dont compare this video with movies or something else. I see it as it is. Its essence
The video of Aquarius Water in the dark. Water from the sky. Water from veins Water runs out Aquarius age And No. Stop.
I hardly dare to reveal more from all my impressions and emotions of the video here on the forum since if I just try they will place me into the same dwelling as we see in the video

I just cant resist the temptation to laugh at snobs who blamed the video FoolsLikeMe saying that it was weak because of being a student work, and appreciated at the moment this video just because it was announced as a work of a high professional. I guess how funny it sounded to Mattias ears since both videos are made by one person. And both are professionally done. Both are conceptual and impressive.
Dear snobs, cheer up!  :winky: 
Perhaps now youll find something good about the video FoolsLikeMe the same as about TheyDoIt video.
Remember? I told you that Fools was excellent. This one (TheyDoIt) is more than excellent. Its tremendously excellent. I just hope that the next video will be done by the same author.  :good:

So someone noticed this.  :happy:

I hope he will get to do more videos. As Mattias said; "he is OUR Anton Corbjin!"  :paint:

To say honestly, it was not me who noticed the fact that both videos are made by one author. I paid much attention to the videos themselves and didnt pay enough attention to memorizing the name of video director. (!Shame on me!  :guilty: )
I just saw the mention about video authorship in ASK department of www.vacuum-people.com.
But it was really me who noticed how funny it is when people play snobs. And I couldnt miss an occasion to point it in public with
( :winky: !shame on me! :winky: ) gloating delight. For edification. Since I dont like when somebody is puffed-up without real reasons.
Excuse me all who didnt enjoy my attitude.

Sorry, David I dont know who is Anton Corbjin. Would you please to tell me? Id like to understand the meaning of Mattias sentence you quoted above.

Anton Corbin is a great film maker and video director.. he made many of the Depeche Mode Promo video's and also filmed the movie of them live in concert.. in fact he worked so closely with depeche Mode with their image he is almost recognised as another member of the band... By working with the same director it has firmly establised an IMAGE for the band and I suppose they both have an understanding of what is needed from each other... Hope that helps a little..
