A video for “Busu” by CreepHype. The song is about not being able to express your true feelings to the one you love, and the video adds a new story in-between the lyrics, creating a new unique tale. This new style of music video, which intentionally makes it hard to follow the original lyrics, thereby creating a sense of awkwardness, became an overnight sensation on YouTube, garnering over millions of views. The video packs a full-length film's worth of story into a four-minute video by using methods like fast-forward, situational illustrations and heavy use of subtitles.
