The Dark Side of the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd Mash-up)

The Dark Side of the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd Mash-up)


Long considered to be one of the seminal stoner video experiences, here is the complete synced mash-up that has become legendary!

But first, a little history…

In August 1995, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette published the first mainstream media article about the “synchronicity”, citing the Usenet discussion group alt.music.pink-floyd. Soon afterward, several fans began creating websites in which they touted the experience and tried to comprehensively catalogue the corresponding moments. A second wave of awareness began in April 1997 when Boston radio DJ George Taylor Morris discussed Dark Side of the Rainbow on the air, leading to further mainstream media articles and a segment on MTV news.

Pink Floyd denies connection between the works but take a look, the synchronicities are sometimes eerie. It has also been performed as a live stage version by many theater groups such as Next Door Theater in Massachusetts and Fearnoart Entertainment in California.

In 2007, Brooklyn audio engineer Bryan Pugh married the 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd and 1939 film classic The Wizard of Oz for our internet watching and listening pleasure, that he dubbed The Dark Side of Oz.

Enjoy!  It’s okay.  We don’t judge.
