I know, I know, the whole world is still talking about this show, but one of the cooler less-discussed things in the show was the use of inanimate object point of view shots. This video from January 2012 is an awesome collection of all the best ones up to that point. It’s a cool idea. If the normal point of view in a TV show is from an arbitrary spot that we’re not supposed to acknowledge as being anybody’s 1st person view, then why not see the point of view from something that isn’t a person at all. I love the underwater ones, especially from the inside of the toilet. The video Summer posted totally stole the idea of being inside the washing machine, but if you’re gonna steal you might as well steal from the best.
