Faces on LP Album Covers, From Madonna to Bob Dylan, Beatbox to Israeli Musician's A Capella [VIDEO]

It's pretty hard to make a music video that's unique and totally one-of-a-kind, not to mention one that completely makes you gasp in delight.

But that's exactly what Israeli director Vania Heymann achieves with the music video for Israeli singer Roy Kafri's "Mayokero," which follows iconic LP album covers that are animated to depict their famous faces, from Michael Jackson to Bob Dylan to Madonna to members of The Smiths to Prince (and so forth) beatboxing to Kafri's intriguing a cappella composition.

It's a pretty ingenious idea, but after all, Heymann is the one who came up with that awesome channel-flipping interactive music video for Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone," which was created using the technology of Israeli startup, Interlude.

In addition to the aforementioned artists, keep your eyes out for David Bowie, ABBA, Serge Gainsbourg, Simon & Garfunkel, Lionel Richie, and much more. It's all pretty fascinating, not to mention the song itself, where Kafri seriously shows off his vocal chops.

What, you thought Matisyahu was the only Jew who could beatbox?
