I never got around to watching the video for Chairlift's Evident Utensil last week because the main visual technique — the use of video compression artifacts — seemed self-evident and gimmicky, the kind of thing you don't need to see once you've heard the premise. But the video is actually really nice and they use the compression in a non-obvious and clever way.
