DJ Format meets Dance Dance Revolution Director Keith Schofield turns out a blazing video for British DJ Format and his top notch crew of pasty Canadian rappers, turning their song "3 Feet Deep" into a high adrenaline arcade hi-score smashing rampage.

You can also see more DJ format and Abdominal videos at my boy ruben's website, including that Format/J5 video that made such a splash earlier and earlier and earlier

That DJ Format/Jurassic 5 video was all filmed in Hollywood/Echo Park and this one looks like it was filmed in the video arcade in Westwood (where UCLA is ... um, in Los Angeles, California). Looks like it was filmed right behind the change guy booth.

I always wanted to see "pasty Canadian rappers" in a post. Thanks!

Flawless game tribute, and the vocalists weren't bad, either. I enjoyed it. Here's a direct link to the movie.

I used to go to Toastmasters with "Abdominal." I knew he was a rapper but I didn't ever see him perform. He's a really nice guy (and not a bad toastmaster) so it is pretty great to see him in the blue.

I also really like the video Ruben Fleischer did for the DJ Format track "Vicious Battle Raps", which is (impressively) one continuous shot. It's on that other director's website, as mentioned by Cyphill above.

As a Beatmania IIDX nut, this really floats my boat. Thanks for the link.

This was pretty hilarious even with the sound off... must listen later.

Great video, thanks for that. Does DJ Format have a new album coming out?

I checked out the other videos in his collection and absolutely loved them! Can't wait to see what he does next.

Quite clearly, you have not checked the OR. You'd like it so far.
