Mogwai – Simon Ferocious

There’s nothing particularly unique about this video – a plane carrying skydivers takes off and they jump out and float through the air. In a post-Felix Baumgartner world, a jump video with no gimmicks or tricks should feel boring, but something about the combination of the jumpers’ slow descent and Mogwai‘s fuzzed-out soundtrack leads to the same serenity people report feeling while looking at Mark Rothko’s paintings.
