Was this video filmed in the black rock desert?

Postby organizedchaos » Tue Mar 27, 2012 4:03 pm

Anyone out there seen this video yet?

I am curious to see what your thoughts are. I also wish I could figure out how to embed that video, but that's for me to research and you to make fun of me for.
The answer is never no.

Looks like one of the dry lakes in SoCal. Definitely salt, not Bonneville though.

I can't tell you where it was filmed. It was definitely aware of the burn and included burn-influenced imagery and ideas. Those were the most useless sparkleponies, however. I suspect it's a very LA take on the whole thing.

To embed: go to youtube (or vimeo)- copy the URL in the browser window (not the "share" button unless you want extra steps. In your eplaya posting window you'll see a youtube button- click it, paste the URL between the tags and- this is the critical part- delete the ampersand & everything after it (I've highlighted that part in blue in your quote above)

Taa-daa!

I'd say someone on the design team has been to BRC lol. Anyway, I'd take any one of those costumes (minus feathers of course). I'm loving the mirrored hat/helmut thing.

I asked uncle Google, and according to an advertising industry blog it was filmed at the Bonneville Salt Flats. I don't see it as a ripoff of anything from the playa, things like steampunk and Lady Gaga and house music and driving fast are already popular well outside the event. I rather liked it - visually it's stunning, and while I don't care for that particular flavor I say kudos to the company for making something other than a generic advert (ie hot people in default nightclubs ordering brand x, cocktail y).

I was leaning toward Bonneville, as the mountains looked awfully familiar, but I know Western mountain ranges tend to all look the same.

Come on, if it wasn't for Burning Man, this kind imagery wouldn't be "chic". It would just be weird.
