HomeStarRunnerTron has created a video remix of Harold Ramis’s classic 1993 comedy Groundhog Day. “Bing” took 8-and-a-half months to complete, and features Stephen Tobolowsky (of /Film’s own Tobolowsky Files podcast) as Ned Reyerson front and center. If it seems like something that might have been created by Pogo, that’s because it’s a tribute to Pogo. Here is a note from the artist:
This has been one maddening labor of love for me. This is a remix of a movie that has been near and dear to be since around Third Grade– the 1993 romantic-comedy-fantasy classic, Groundhog Day! It’s comprised entirely– and I mean entirely out of small bits and pieces of the movie, either re-pitched, slowed down, sped up, and sometimes with a slight touch of auto-tune for good measure (or a lot of auto-tune to re-configure chords in some score samples). The piece is completely inspired from my love of all things Pogo (aka the genius remixer from Perth), as well as just my affinity for music itself. I readjusted Jack Conte’s VideoSong medium to show every single one of the parts sampled. I tried to make this song a sweeping medley of emotions, quite in the same way the movie itself is! I do so hope you enjoy its whimsicality. *grins* It’s quite a smorgasbord of sight and sound. Am I right or am I right or am I right or am I right?
