Video #16 – “Park Slope (In the Eye)” by Matt roi Berger

Bashing my hood eh? For such a silly, awesome, and just plain ridiculous video, I’ll allow it.

 
Matt roi Berger has taken on an ambitious project – Song Cycle where he writes a song for each week in 2010. Sound familiar? His songs range from feel-good pop punk to twee-pop with bizarre lyrics to straight up 90s-driven rock. Matt cites Weird Al as an influence which is certainly apparent in this video for “Park Slope (In the Eye).”

Pair Matt’s wacky (and deadpan) performance with the smart camera/special effects work of Michael Raynes and you get this glitchy, off-the-wall, spastic, super fun, “eff you” to one of my favorite places. Sweet.

For more with Matt roi Berger, New Yorkers, check out the upcoming Teen Girl Scientist Monthly show Friday December 10 at R-Bar on Bowery.
