Andrew W.K. live and inverted


Sorry, your browser doesn’t support this Canvas demo.

Having just finished reading Michael Nelson’s investigation into who/what Andrew W.K. is, I went back to the beginning to see where the article began: his latest video for “You’re Not Alone” (top). The video has inverted colors so I played it back in VLC with the colors inverted because I was curious what the unmodified video looked like. I was surprised to find that the hue was also rotated 180 degrees… which is why we’re back here filtering video using the canvas. I suspect the hue is rotated to restore fleshy tones to the video instead of the green skin that would have shown otherwise. That’s why pizza guitar still looks like a pizza.
