I like how the video feels like it could be parts of a horror movie.

This would be great if it could buffer, but also for some reason this is my least favorite song on Simple Math. Does anybody know where the student who made this video goes to school?

I think I read "RIT University" is the place.
Anyway, video was awesome. Wish more music videos were like this.

The story behind this is kinda crazy

Quote:
When the band was approached in the middle of the day by a fan in Rochester, New York they figured they’d be signing a couple of albums, stopping to say hello, taking a photo for a dude’s Facebook or doing normal things that fans do besides hand deliver the band a music video. The student, who had been working on edits for a film school assignment, had been listening to Simple Math in the background, and accidentally found out that the clip matched up with the band’s song perfectly. Oddly, freakishly perfectly.

“We were skeptical to say the least, but the more he talked about it, the more we were interested in actually seeing this thing,” told the band. “He pulled his laptop out and placed it on the steps to the bus. We were blown away. We put him in touch with our manager and for the last few months he’s been putting the finishing touches to this incredible piece. This is that rare moment when art expands further than first intentions or expectations. Where two different inspirations can coincide to create something better. We proudly present to you: ‘Virgin’, directed by Ben Disinger.”

Hey there guys. My name is Ben, and I'm the guy who created the video.

I registered just to say THANK YOU to all of you!! This is my first time creating anything of this magnitude (and hopefully not the last!), and your kind words are what make it all worth it.

Thank you for watching it, and more importantly, thank you for taking the time out of your day to talk about it. That means the world to me. Thank you.

Great job dude! Your story is inspirational and maybe the idea of "fan videos becoming official videos" will pick up! I'm a filmmaker too.
