Directed by Jared Raab, this stereogram music video by Young Rival for Black is Good (Magic Eye Video) turns what looks like ordinary static for the untrained eye to a fully tridimensional experience. Set the video to 1080, follow the instructions on your screen and off you go.

A stereogram is an image which, when viewed with two eyes, using one of several different techniques, produces the illusion of depth perception. They're cool. You can read all about them on Wikipedia. Some of you will already be familiar with the autostereogram, which was popularized by the Magic Eye book series in the 1990s. These are made on computers, and use subtle changes in a repeating pattern to combine depth information for both eyes into one single image. By tricking your eyes into viewing these images a certain way (see below) one can see a three dimensional scene. This video is made up of a sequence of something called a "random dot autostereograms". These are also made on computers, but use subtle differences in a randomly generated field of noise to create the illusion. And a music video... is a music video.
