    @Tiawamutu – they are definitely painted blue in the physical world. My theory is that this is how the video was originally meant to look. They could always just change their skin tone digitally if they wanted to make the negative look weird, the pain seems unnecessary unless they were going for a real-world effect

  2. Tiawamutu says:

    Great version uluru.
    Did they actually get painted blue before they recorded this video to make the negative effect look weird?

    Crowded House always had artsy videos, if you look at “Don’t Stop Now”, “Private Universe”, “Four Seasons in One Day” … etc, then you look at this, you get the feeling that they have no budget to make a video… very disappointing to be honest.

    :D love it!

    On a serious note though, with the strangeness of the images anyway, I can at least see what’s going on..

    I prefer the other one… They looks like avatar, And love the negative colours, with the light variations.

    Much better than the official inverted version, which just made me think there was a mistake with the video encoding or something.
