Watch This, Not That: 6 Amazing St. Louis Videos and Their Terrible Counterparts

Categories: Video

3. Black St. Louis Edition St. Louis is one of the most segregated cities in the country, and "History of Tha Streetz" breaks it down neighborhood by neighborhood. Treat yourself to the safest tour of north city, and see the effects of racism firsthand (instead of listening to a bunch of talking heads pontificate on how it makes them feel).

Not: Racism in St. Louis

4. Dance Like No One's Watching Edition While we love the idea of indoctrinating our children to love the Cardinals by teaching them to dance with fistfuls of baseball cards, we'll be more impressed when this toddler can stay on her feet after a few morning cocktails like I'm-Drunk-At-7-a.m. guy.

"In case you missed RFT picking on someone's family video with 60 views..."

Is this a joke? Can't believe someone's getting paid for this garbage.

Seems a little mean spirited to pick on a family video with 47 views of kids being happy about the Cardinals winning, RFT. I get that you want to watch YouTube videos for a living and call it journalism, but this is beneath even you guys.

Apparently, RFT is loosing touch with capacity for understanding hip, hipsterism and quality. The Charleston video was fun and had great music. The Tree9 one kicks its butt for actually showing off the Best of St. Louis.(Not a TM) Its production values, thru-line, and videography were way superior to a bunch of friends dancing through barely recognizable landmarks. 
RFT makes an intermittently valuable fish wrapper, but should leave the video reviews to someone that knows what they are talking about.

In the case of the first two videos, I disagree. While both videos are clearly highlighting points of interest in St. Louis, the Tree 9 video is better in several respects. The creativity of the shots, the vibrancy of the colors, a cute love story, and the accompanying music fit perfectly. All of the details were coordinated down to the characters costume pieces. And it was a minute shorter while encompassing more story and places. 

The winner of this is clearly the Tree 9 video, across the board from concept to cinematography to editing. Hands down.
