ESPN Recreates Famous Album Covers Using Athletes; Real Katy Perry Is Still Hotter

ESPN MUSIC ALBUM COVERS IIHIH HERO

Photos by Matthias Clamer & ESPN

Every now and then, a creative director is given some extra leeway and some extra budget money to actually do something cool and creative. In this case, Matthias Clamer photographed famous music album covers using athletes. Among the covers are those from Nirvana, Beyonce, RUN DMC, Michael Jackson,  and more. But perhaps my favorite is the one remake of a Bob Dylan cover. There is something just so humanly romantic to it yet as a photographer who has spent lots of time behind the lens photographing weddings and engagements, I can see many photographers creating nearly the same image while making viewers want to be either the man or woman in the photo. That’s not to say that Matthias’s work can easily be duplicated necessarily; but that the concept is simplistic and works very well for the image.

There is a full round of on If It’s Hip, It’s Here. Sadly, Dave Chapelle wasn’t used as Rick James.

PS: Did anyone see Katy Perry’s Dress last night at the Grammy’s? Man, oh man.
