Tao Lin, literal author

We've seen literal video before. Artist/author Tao Lin (b.1983, previously) has turned literalism into performance and literary art. His Asperger style can be quickly distilled in these literally boring videos: [1],[2],[3],[4]. A video interview with Tao has more insights into his technique (and vegetable chopping). The critics don't always seem to get it, nor do I, though they pay lots of attention.

Literal Videos

A-Ha's Take on Me, but done literally with lyrics changed to describe what was happening in the video, instead of the head-scratcher of a 80s video having nothing to do with the song. Also? A-ha still exists and the lead singer still looks the same. This meme of doing new lyrics to go with old videos is novel, previously people made videos to match the lyrics literally.
