Austin Weber | Mamma Mia | Music Video Review
Take a classic 1975 disco song, give it a groovy techno cover, take it to Japan, and the result will be “THIS MAN FLEW TO JAPAN TO SING ABBA IN A BIG COLD RIVER.” As Austin Weber sings from the middle of the Kamo River in Kyoto Japan, the frames of the video dart around the screen. One moment the focus is a man sitting on the bank staring at Weber in the river, the next there’s a quick pan back to Weber dancing. The eight-bit composition of “Mamma Mia” revels in its low-fi production. This music video knows exactly how ridiculous it is and does not disappoint.
