Music video analysis

  1. 1.   By Joe McCay, Rory Mackenzie and Siobhan Brewer
  2. 2.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nai7w1frB1E
  3. 3.  We analysed the music video for “To Be The Best” by Tenacious D.  The music video is mainly narrative, however, it also has aspects of disjuncture and performance videos.  The disjuncture and performance aspects of the video are mainly in the song portion, with the rest of the video being mainly narrative.
  4. 4.  It also appears to be a parody of narrative videos, as it follows a narrative structure but has elements of ridicule.  Many of the disjuncture and performance aspects of the video also support this idea of being ridiculous and a parody, as it seems very similar to a comedy film.
  5. 5.  The song itself is mostly narrative and quite short, showing that music videos today are seen as an art form, as the song only takes up a short duration of the music video, with the video being very much like a short film.
