In itself completely banal, the shot derives its power from the fact that shows us living people filmed in a real setting over a hundred years ago. It is also historically important for being part of the original Lumiere Brothers film programme shown on December 28, 1895

I just don't see the appeal of flicks like this on top lists. Cute baby, though.

Lumiere Brothers is why it made a list. There's lots of videos and art work that is similar to a famous artist but if you can't sell the brand aka the artist, the art isn't worth anything.

There's many short on this site that consist of things like someone walking around their backyard filming what's there. Lot's of other people did it to but they aren't considered artists, so nobody cares.

It's like the little kid that was sold to everyone as being able to paint. A little more research is done and it's found out that the dad used to paint the same style but didn't get anywhere with it. Even though he films the kid painting, the kid never does the same level of work so he makes excuses but still claims the kid can do it. So when people think the kid painted a certain picture, it's worth something. When people think the same picture was done by the dad, it isn't worth anything.

The painting is the same but it's the artist/brand that gets people to buy.

The same thing works in music too. If your everyday normal Joe made the same music that Wesley Willis did, there's no way it would be as popular as it is now.
