Katy Perry, Kanye and Beyonce need to fall the fuck back because it's game, set and match for Chris Dane Owens. His video tour de force for the smash hit "Shine On Me" hits on all cylinders and makes things easy for next year's MTV awards judges. Robert Short, the man responsible for wowing audiences with visual effects in "Splash" and "Beetlejuice," stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park for CDO on this one.
Flying dragons? Check.
Split screen swordplay? Check.
MF DOOM cameo? Check.
Sexually ambiguous protagonist? Check.
Bravo, Chris Dane Owens. 2009 is your year.
