On top of the world (2) - Moon landings and other wacky theories

Tornant al video d'ahir - quantes cosetes heu vist? Jo he trobat uns quants, i Google unes altres ...
Per a començar, ajuda saber que una de les teories sobre la no-arribada a la lluna es basa en que va ser el director Stanley Kubick qui va gravar la pel·lícula del fals atteratge - teoria que es va embolicar més amb el documental fals (un mockumentary) sobre aquests "fets". Els creients en la teoria aquesta també pensen que Kubrick va deixar pistes en la pel·licula El Resplandor (The Shining).

Bé, primera imatge, lo xiquet en el tricicle - una copia de l'imatge del El Resplandor. A més, porta un barret d'alumini per protegir-se dels suposats rajos que envien els russos.
minut 0:07 - nom de la botiga, anagram gairebé de  Stanley Kubrick
0:11 Nom al jersei del xiquet (i despres veiem que està als vestits dels astronauts; SNOGARD => dragons (nom del grup) al reves.
0:13 marca de la tele, Monolith - recordant la pel·licula 2001.
0:17 el paper de la pared té el mateix dibuix que la alfombra a The Shining. Aquesta alfombra de The Shining, en teoria tenia el mateix dibuix que el centre de control de NASA. Fins i tot a la Shining, el xiquet porta jersei de Apollo 11 i es fica al mig de la pista.  
0:25 numero de la casa, 2001! 
0:33 VW Beetle, com la pel·li The Shining
0:36 Foto de Paul McCartney
0:40 maquina d'escriure de The Shining, 2 besssons de The Shining, i un simbol masonic a la pared.
0:49 simbol del "all-seeing eye", la teoria que els franco-masons ens controlen.
0:51  237 = nombre de la habitacio de The Shining = distancia, en miles, fins la lluna
0:59 pas de viatnants, del LP Abbey Road dels The Beatles
1:03 la matricula del cotxe canvia, i ara diu "Ben is dead" (Ben s'ha mort); a un dels cotxes de Abbey Road dels Beatles van posar la data de neixement de McCartney, una pista de la teoria que deia que McCartney s'havia mort.
1:06 0009 LAH =>  HAL 9000, de la pel·li 2001
1:44 Mono com en una pel·li de Kubrick 
2:16, al clipboard, posa SK - Stanley Kubrick :)

Segur que hi ha més cosetes, a banda d'una ambientació bonissim - els russos, Nixon, els hippies, Easy Rider etc :) Enjoy it! 
....
So, about yesterday's pop video: to start with, it's worth knowing that some people believe the Americans never landed on the moon, and one of the branches of this "conspiracy theory" claims that film director Stanley Kubrick actually filmed the "landing" in Hollywood. This is complicated even more by the false documentary (mockumentary) Dark Side of the Moon which claims to prove this theory - but is itself one big fake!
Kubrick-moon believers also believe that in the film The Shining he put clues as to his involvement in the "moon con".
Anyway, here's what yours truly and Mr Google have come up with - but there's probably loads more to see ...
First image, the tricycle is like the one in The Shining. And the tin foil hat is great, many Americans believed the Russians were bombarding them with some kind of rays and wore tin foil for protection - apparently.
Minute 0:07 - The name of the shop is a rough anagram of Stanley Kubrick
0:11 Name on kid's jumper (and astronauts' gear) is Snogard, an anagram of the group's name - Dragons.
0:13 TV brand Monolith, remembering the film 2001.
0:17 Wallpaper has same pattern as the carpet in The Shining, which itself is supposed to be based on a plan of NASA launch pad. Kid in The Shining even wore an Apollo 11 jumper!
0:25 House number - 2001
0:33 VW Beetle - like in The Shining
0:36 Photo of Paul McCartney
0:40 Typewriter from The Shining, twins like in The Shining, and masonic symbol on wall
0:49 the "all-seeing" eye symbol which some link to the supposed running-of-the-world being carried out by the masons or other secret groups (Brian's comment: pretty bad job they're making of it!)
0:51 237 = room number in The Shining = distance to moon in miles
0:59 Abbey Road LP sleeve
1:03 Car registration number changes to "Ben is dead". Another wacky 60s' theory was that Paul McCartney had died and the Beatles showed this on the Abbey Road cover - Paul shoeless, and his birthdate was the registration number of a car.
1:06 0009LAH => HAL9000, the computer in Kubrick's 2001 film
1:44 monkey in another of Kubrick's films
2:16 SK on clipboard - Stanley Kubrick.

Apart from that, the music is great, and Nixon too! Pretty sure there's more stuff hidden in there, but I'll leave that to you ....

4 comentaris:

  1. At 1:00 you see a Robin Reliant which echoes Elvis Presley's secret automobile preference. At 4.02 that miserable bearded guy (Che Guevara lookalike?) is wearing a parka jacket - clear link to Mod culture of the mid-sixties.

    ResponElimina
  2. OK! Thanks, I didn't know about Elvis' fascination for three-wheelers, but have just googled it - well spotted!

    ResponElimina
  3. Very clever production of the music video isn't it Brian, when you deconstruct it like this. It just adds to the whole conspiracy debate doesn't it ~ maybe Kubrick is not really dead??

  4. He's probably living with Elvis somewhere!
