Urlesque Salutes Viral Video Stars of the Background
There's nothing like observing seemingly tame footage achieve greatness in the edges of the frame. Some of the web's best videos owe everything to action that's not front and center. Here's an Urlesque tribute to our favorite stars of the background -- enjoy, and check out the links below for the full source material.
- An accident prone baby blends well with Jemex's "Over Me", a hot creative commons backing track we chose.
- It's not a party unless a crazy guy dances behind a reporter on live TV.
- Chumazik (a true star, but not funny)
- Whether it's a kangaroo or dog with snake, animals are background magic.
- Politics is awash in great backgrounds, from Bill Clinton's "dream" on MLK Day to the Huckabee commercial of the floating cross to Chuck Norris and his incredible teeth (also see the Colbert/McCain green screens below).
- Chinese MC Hammer and his knitting supporter are the gift that keeps on giving.
- This Korean drummer's passion cannot be contained.
- McCain and Colbert in the shower (kicking off other Green Screen challenge highlights dancing bears, modern stripper, vintage stripper and squirrel.
