"Video Games" music video turns 10 today

Recommended Posts

This anniversary almost passed without recognition. It's hard to pin down an exact "anniversary" for Videos Games' success since it took a few months to take off and there were multiple uploads. But the original video was first uploaded by Lana 5 May 2011—10 years ago today. :poordat:

Here is a link you can see the upload page as it appeared on 15 May 2011: http://web.archive.org/web/20110515012736/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uKl3xeBVY4

It's funny I hadn't realised her Keds Collective video was still live at the time until now (3rd suggested video in the list)

I had never noticed until this very second that by August she updated the description to say Summertime Sadness :pray:

It's nice looking at the old YouTube because it reminds me of a time before mukbangs, beauty community drama and hype house videos. What bliss it was. 

 

Spoiler

I sound like a boomer, I know. Just let me reminisce :crai:

 


I pray your life is sweet, you fucker

One of my favorite Lana songs of all time, thanks for the reminder. It will always make me cry, no matter where you put it. 10 years already, I can not believe it. I can't believe Amy wasn't dead then and that they could have collaborated.

The Born To Die album cover being shot the day before her death will always be one of the most interesting unrelated ~astral type connections to me

It's so strange and sad. I feel that connection too.

What a day, I'm so happy that such a masterpiece of a song like is Video Games was her breakthrough, imagine if this was never a hit and left un leaked until 2012, that would've been such a crime lol

 

I REALLY would like to see if she ever did more stuff with Robopop, their production was amazing (even if she thought at least when BTD got released that it sounded cheap compared to the others)
