Some of the many looks from Eytan And The Embassy’s new video, ‘Everything Changes.’
Meet Eytan Oren of Eytan and The Embassy (if you don’t remember his hilarious songs from the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.) Vaguely reminiscent of Ben Folds with a tinge of Mark Ronson‘s signature ’60s Phil Spector sound, Etyan and his four-piece band are at the brink of household-name fame. Raised by parents who introduced him on Bob Dylan and The Beatles, Eytan began piano lessons at the age of 6 and studied music throughout high school before heading to Columbia University, where he majored in — yep — music. All of which explains why his new “Everything Changes” video is a lesson in modern-day pop music history.
Similar to Ingrid Michaelson’s stunning “Blood Brothers” video, in his “Everything Changes” video, Oren morphs into music’s greats: Buddy Holly, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Elton John, David Bowie and even Lady Gaga. What’s more, Eytan underwent a whopping 18 different costume changes. And miraculously, the whole thing was shot in one take and came together on an extremely tight budget (props, because that David Bowie Aladdin Sane sparkly eyepiece looks HIGH QUALITY!). And by the way, we’re not the only ones impressed — a bunch of famous people are too! Neil Patrick Harris recently tweeted “Just saw a most creative and inspiring music video. Love it! Gotta watch.” Al Yankovic gave the video a shout-out and, and Harry Shum of “Glee” also tweeted the clip’s praises. Basically, Eytan created an unforgettable video about famous people that’s now adored by famous people.
