From Bob Dylan To Deadmau5, Watch Eytan And The Embassy’s 18 Costume Changes

Pop stars have a reputation for making multiple costume changes in their videos, but Eytan And The Embassy may have broken the record with 18 different costume switches in their video for “Everything Changes”. The band’s frontman Eytan Oren travels through musical history while transforming into famous musicians like Bob Dylan, Sid Vicious, Elton John, Billie Joe Armstrong and even Weird Al Yankovic, deadmau5 and Lady Gaga. It’s a clever concept… and one we saw delivered just a few weeks ago with Ingrid Michaelson‘s video for “Blood Brothers.” Not only is the idea identical, many of the musicians both Ingrid and Oren choose to transform into overlap. They both even go for hairbow Gaga, a look the actual Gaga hasn’t worn in years.

Still, props where props are due — Eytan manages to fit more than a dozen costume changes into a four minute video without any editing. Plus, a drunk Courtney Love stand-in stumbling in the background when the singer turns into Kurt Cobain is just pretty much genius.
