The Best of BUG: The Evolution of Music Video
Come feast your eyes – and, of course, your ears – as the sell-out music video show, BUG, makes its debut at Green Man Festival 2012. Hosted by the brilliant Adam Buxton – comedian, writer, broadcaster, video director, general music video enthusiast and YouTube comment wrangler – BUG promises a set of awe-inspiring music videos, astounding online nuggets and a unique brand of sit-down comedy.
BUG began in April 2007 as a series of bi-monthly shows at BFI Southbank – the home of British cinema. These celebrations of global creativity in music video have since become a phenomenon, as popular and brilliant as the visual ideas which the BUG team unearths. This special show for Green Man Festival 2012 is a selection of some favourite videos from the recent BFI shows – with Adam’s own inimitable presentation and some delightfully unbalanced commentary from YouTube commentators, all interspersed with some gems of Adam’s own making.
This special edition of the Best of BUG promises outstanding clips rarely seen on a big screen (or even a TV screen), some incredible online discoveries and hilarious insights into the online community.
