So take a look at it, I believe its a farely common music video trick.

Now Im pretty sure that its undercranking the frame rate and playing back at normal, in order to make this work with music they, slow playback and the musicians/actors/etc. move slower to compensate. This syncs the action and performance when played back. Is this correct? Id like to test this but I do not have access to a camera at the moment as it is 1245AM. Please tell me its this simple but if not, how does it work? Its not shutter speed/angle/syncro scan, im sure of that. Thanks.

I looks like they were just skipping frames in post. But I'm not a post guy so I could very well be wrong.
Sounds a lot like a Flight of the Conchords song.

This was under-cranked with the actors moving very slowly?

Although, I believe he had the actors freeze in rhythm between movements to give it more of an animated feel. Sort of like robots.

I was thinking it could be that simple. Then I think I over thought it. So, it possible it could be a post thing, Im wondering who would know?...

I'm sure the Director, Editor, DP, and Producer know.

It looks like they're removing every other frame and then doubling the remaining frames to mimic animating on 2s.
