For the music video 'If You Ever Need Someone' by The Family Bones, over 25,000 Post-It notes were used to create a drastic stop-motion effect.

While some use people use Post-It notes to write messages or reminders, The Family Bones has taken up the sticky note into a new use. The band worked with Image Flux's animator Aaron Kaminar to direct a video that required long days and nights to complete. It took roughly 12-14 hours a day in a four month period to finish off the Post-It frenzy video.

Although the video used animation and other visual techniques, the Post-It notes are real and were placed by hand. A green screen was used for the parts requiring live action, however, this dedicated group took the time to stick the notes one by one. Stats for Post-It Frenzy Music Videos Trending: Older & Mild
