First-Ever Music Video Made With Instagram is Just Plain Awesome

In October 2010, Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom created a whole new way to share our lives with friends and family. And now, just two short years later, over 50 million people have shared more than 1 billion photos with the application.

Instagram is, without a doubt, one of the most popular and successful phone applications ever invented, and chances are you’re one of those 50 million who have snapped a sunset pic or two. Your photo library also probably has about 500 pictures of your dog in sepia tone or a few self-portraits you’re too embarrassed to publish. And everyone knows that you haven’t truly used Instagram unless you’ve taken a picture of your dinner at least once. But, have you ever made a music video?

Well, these guys did. And it’s awesome.

They’re a band called The Plastics Revolution, and the song is called “Invasión.” According to their Vimeo page, no one has ever recorded an entire official music video strictly using Instagram, which means that there wasn’t any third-party editing or adjustments. Topping out at 1,905 pictures, this video was created entirely by individual photos captured on a phone set to “multi-shot mode” and then run through a regular Instagram filter. That’s it! Anyone with Instagram and the “multi-shot” option could create something just like this.

This is somewhat revolutionary because up until now, most professional expressions of art through media could only be produced using expensive software or equipment. But, as this band proved, you can create art just like this from your CAR if you want to.

What do you think? Do you think that the ease and availability of applications like Instagram are now opening the door to artists who perhaps would have never created anything at all? Or do you think this is a fluke?

Check out the video below.
