Video remix artists Eclectic Method cut and paste music videos, movies, current events, and video games into a danceable stream of sound and heady stretch of images. It's fun to watch them "scratch" DVD's live, and their recorded work makes for great YouTube fare.
Here's my favorite examples of their video mashup:
BOB MARLEY - (an official video mix for the Marley Family)
OBAMA VS. CLINTON: MEDIA HYPE OVERLOAD
ENTOURAGE HBO: Ari Gold says F*%K
ZEITGHOST #2 - Eclectic Method's Signature Music Video Remixtape
TONY SOPRANO's Video Remix
KILL BILL - Movie Fight Remix
But it's even more fun to play with this stuff oneself. In true DIY fashion, they've created a super-easy video remixer that lets the least experienced or most stoned computer users to play mash-up with images from their last video.
(All you do is click on the image, and then use your number keys to jam.)
It may not be the most deeply creative computer experience available, but it is kinda fun - and accessible to all. Even my 3-year-old.
