70 million

They are in a Rembrandt, but are not The Rembrandts. Thank goodness.

Gericault, David, Velazquez, Klimt–the gang’s all here in Franco-American band Hold Your Horses’s new art-literate video for their sunny, catchy song, “70 million.” The band recreates 25 famous paintings in the video, and if you head over to Flavorwire, you can see side-by-side comparisons for most of the featured works.

The best way to get visibility? Give ’em something worth looking at.

Update: If you don’t mind reading it in Spanish, you can find a full list of the featured works, in the order they appear in the video, here.
