Radiohead’s House of Cards video in LEGO by Ian Mackinnon

The music video for Radiohead’s “House of Cards” from In Rainbows (naturally available from Radiohead - In Rainbows) just seemed to be begging for the LEGO treatment.

Ian Mackinnon obliges with this strange and gorgeous rendition (with a hat-tip to reader wb):

Ian used the 3D plotting data from the original video to do his time-lapse LEGO interpretation of “House of Cards”. The result is sheer brilliance.

And here’s the original video for “House of Cards”, for comparison:

    Wow. That’s a stunningly fluid-looking effect. If I had money and was Radiohead, I would be paying him to make LEGO music videos for me.

    What if you just had money, or if you were just radiohead – would you still do it, or do you have to be both?

    I’ve read in a few interviews that Thom Yorke was a big fan of Lego as a child. I wonder a) if he’s seen this, and b) if he’s an ALE.

    Really, really excellent art in both videos.
