This one comes by way of St. Catharines band Waterbodies. Shot independently, the video, which features a large, sweaty man sensually devouring an uncomfortable amount of McDonalds hamburgers, is what the band describes as a common weeknight occurrence where they come from.

All that aside, this song is on point!

Now this is really something! “Batman Evolution” is the latest creation from ThePianoGuys, a duo known for their incredibly lavish and meticulously scored piano-cello renditions of popular songs. This particular video features Batmobile replicas as well as visuals that mimic the vibe of each Batman era. Beginning with Neal Hefti’s theme song from the 1960s TV series, they then transition into Danny Elfman’s theme song from the 1989 film, before closing things out with “Like a Dog Chasing Cars” from Hans Zimmer’s 2008 score for The Dark Knight.

Pretty incredible stuff.

This is the latest from Denmark’s The Blue Van and it’s a gloriously seductive 60’s soul-pop inspired gem.
