My favourite video of 2007 was probably made in someone's den, or basement. I've been obsessed with the song My Body is a Cage by the Arcade Fire since seeing this fan video on Pitchfork's Top 50 Videos of 2007. It's entirely engrossing and mesmerizing, but came from such a simple idea - cutting an old movie to fit in with a new song. The effect is amazing, however. I need to see Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West to find out what's up with the harmonicas.
