Eric Wareheim directed a music video for Maroon 5′s “If I Never See You Again,” you guys.

Nice. The thing is, according to Brian Greene’s well-articulated concept of the multi-verse, somewhere out in the depths of space, or maybe beyond, at a distance beyond human comprehension, there’s an exact replica of Earth as we know it, exactly as it is today, where I’m wearing my pajamas and sitting at my computer at 2 in the afternoon blogging about nonsense, and you are doing whatever it is you’re doing in your pajamas right now, everything exactly the same, except that this video is not a funny, curious oddity reserved for over-educated misanthropes who have turned disdain into a sport, but just the number one music video in the country, expressing the everyday American’s concept of what’s cool and interesting. Science is crazy!

  1. I wonder how many of us really are in our dressing gowns at 2 this afternoon.

    I also wonder how many of us are getting paid to work from home in our jam-jams while reading Videogum and watching tv. I know this chick is! Go internet!

  2. Gabe, please call Eric and ask him if he has a bunch of old equipment salvaged from some Idaho community college fire sale, or he’s using crazy “Avid in Minority Report” equipment to make these things. I just don’t know but I’d really like to.

    Then ask him to do Hamletmachine.

    i want the earth where i’m in that video. booooo, this earth.

  5. I would like to see a rough draft of your spiel here. its great itself and follows such a great video, but i just want to see what else you thought of instead of saying that you’re in your pajamas. coincidently i know a dog named misanthrope.

  6. I applaud your ability to make an otherwise skippable post (“That Eric guy makes video for Maroon 5″) incredibly enjoyable.

    Er, I believe there is a cameo from the couple we saw having sex in the last Eric Wareheim video.

    Today, Videogum, you are the worst.

  8. The best part of this is how all the womens’ asses in the video are baffling and even concerning to the dudes. They stare at the asses with genuine fear and confusion, as though Godzilla is coming toward them and they can’t quite believe what they’re looking at.
