Show and Tell: Floating

There’s a shot halfway through this music video where a stalk of broccoli floats dreamily across the screen — frame left to frame right — shot at 60 frames per second. (Or something fast.) On the weird power of that shot alone, I showed the entire music video to my class, which follows the standard arc of boy-meets-girl-who-throws-an-entire-produce-section-at-his-head-in-slow-motion. ¶ After they watched it, several students agreed with me about the broccoli shot, though we were all stumped for an explanation. The broccoli just spoke to us.
