The 'Image Language' Someone Like You Video is Visually Stimulating

Some of the YouTube community's favourite video projects include changing up popular artists songs in different ways, be it through musical cover or lip-dub, there are a sea of creative options, and the 'Image Language' Someone Like You video is no exception.

As part of the 'Write With Images' project, the premise of the video is to look up every word of the lyrics in Adele's sorrowful hit in Google Images and then to select the first image of the search results. The result is a video with the selected pictures superimposed onto a heartfelt live performance. Although there is no directing expertise or impressive editing going on, the concept is novel and it is interesting to watch the serious rendition transform into a quick and flashing image reel.

With the tone completely changed, I could see this idea opening the door for copycats, who perhaps would apply this pop culture-charged style to famous speeches or documents as well. Stats for Image-Enhanced Songs Trending: Older & Mild
