KEEP SCROLLING... THERE'S MORE!
Currently I'm using Mozilla Firefox as my browser and I have installed youtube

Plural / syn-chro-nic-ity
Simultaneous occurrence of casual unrelated events and the belief that the simultaneity has a meaning beyond mere coincidence.
THE Beginning is always A GOOD PLACE TO START
I believe a Music Video Sync is based on an illusion that happens to the brain and the eye when they are presented with to much information to process at one time. Although it may look like the video is in a different language at times, it is the flow and the intent of the sync to compensate for the translational difference and give the brain the opportunity to take the line of least resistance which in most cases is my reinvented story line. It is an interactive opportunity to participate in something that is designed to be interpreted in your own personal way.
In my opinion a Movie Sync is based on the interaction of two completely different entertainment subject matters. Typically the Movie Sync is presented in the form of a movie video played against a previously recorded audio track or more often than not an entire album. There is little or no editing involved in a Movie Sync rather it is the interaction between the two subject matters and the effect that supports the belief that the two worlds were made for each other.
