Watch: Music video for Linkin Park’s ‘Transformers’ theme song

06.12.09 8 years ago

We already told you what we thought of “New Divide,” the theme song to forthcoming “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” Now you can decide for yourself what you think of the music video to the new Linkin Park song. Check it out below.

The video, directed by LP’s own DJ Joe Hahn, utilizes a fairly new editing technique referred to as datamoshing, which forces the process of what’s called a compression artifact. Its basically purposely overloading the computer animator/builder with too much information, causing “leftover” imaging to linger where new data should appear. Fancy.

Other recent datamoshers include Chairlift’s “Evident Utensil” and Kanye West’s “Welcome to Heartbreak.”

“Transformers,” starring Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf, comes out June 24.
