Miley Cyrus is receiving some rare non-negative attention on Reddit after this post reached near the top of r/videos. The video uses datamoshing, basically using data-manipulation as a special effect, to achieve some really interesting visuals. Redditors compared the video to using the VLC flash video player, but really its effects are familiar to anyone who has watched a few web videos. While typically digital artifacts are completely undesirable, this video really does put the effects to good use, probably because the video has such a simple and plain visual style. Dope.
