Taking The Mickey

I just read about this project called White Glove Tracking in which May last year the task was set for visitors of www.whiteglovetracking.com to help isolate the position of the white glove in all 10,060 frames of Michael Jackson's 5 min 34 sec landmark performance of Billy Jean to aid experiment of coding and image manipulation with somewhat hilarious consequences.

After about a minute you can see what they've done to the footage, and if you were to spend a bit more time on it you could amend it so the glove was the only thing being magnified.

If you have no idea whats going on then check out the original clip here.

I'm not to sure what other purposes the coding was intended to be used for but it does lend itself to help inspire some more creative music videos, given the amount of tosh around these days.
