Pentatonix, the American a cappella group known for their rendition of hit songs such as Somebody That I Used to Know and We Are Young (whose YouTube videos also went viral), is now immortalized in LEGO form through a charmingly hilarious music video just in time for Christmas. Showing their child-like and fun-loving side, they’ve teamed up with LEGO to create a music video for their latest upbeat Christmas song Up On The Housetop. Rendered in minifigure forms, the group’s music video offers a 360-degree view that is also watchable in VR. Watch this.
LEGO seems to be showing interest in VR technology, following the announcement of its upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz VR Builder for the Android system last week. The virtual reality game allows players to enter a colorful virtual room where they take on the role of a particular BrickHeadz and interact with the environment using Google’s proprietary VR headset. If you recall, LEGO launched its Brickheadz theme during July’s San Diego Comic Con, focusing on both DC and Marvel superheroes.
