quarter-minute magic: pearl jam’s evenflow

I think the first 15 seconds of this video is my favorite 15-second clip of any music video ever made. It kicks off with a super-earnest Eddie Vedder telling “Josh” (who the f’ is josh?) to turn down the lights because “it’s not a television studio, it’s a fucking rock concert” … and then culminates with Jeff Ament flying across the stage to the opening chords of the song.

Seriously, folks — go ahead and try to find me a better 15 seconds of music video. I contend that such a thing does not exist.
