Billie Eilish Releases World's First Infinite Music Video
YouTube has created the first ever 'infinite music video' in celebration of Billie Eilish reaching 1 billion views for her music video for 'Bad Guy'.
The video platform teamed up with the 18-year-old singer to create the concept, which sees tens of thousands of covers of the hit available, with fans able to essentially remix the track.
The infinite video is available now via billie.withyoutube.com. It states: "One song. Thousands of covers. Never the same twice."
If, like me, you still have no idea what this means, here is how YouTube described it: "'Bad Guy' by Billie Eilish has inspired thousands of fans to cover the song on YouTube. Their versions are amazing to watch, spanning almost every country, language, and genre.
"We built this AI experiment to celebrate them, and see what would happen if they could all play together. It's the world's first infinite music video, weaving together an ever-expanding collection of thousands of covers.
"Machine learning keeps all these covers on the same beat and lets you jump from video to video seamlessly.
"Every play is unique and watching every combination of covers would take at least 1.46 x 10^100 years, which is longer than the lifespan of the universe."

Back in June, Billie hit out at media coverage of a video where she took off some of her clothes in a protest against body shaming.
Eilish has always been outspoken about body image, the media's handling of it and the impact it has on teenage boys and girls.
The short film, which was played just before the last song of her live show when she toured in March, makes a critical stand against the toxic culture created by some media outlets.
In an interview with GQ, she said: "I felt very motivated to do it. Although, of course, the Daily Mail headlines the next day ran 'Billie strips to her bra in new tour visuals'. I thought, 'Are you actually deadass?' How predictable.
"First off, I am not stripping. The whole point is that I don't strip all the way to my bra as it's gone before you see it - it's not yours to see. I mean, that s*** is all over Pornhub.
"I mean, I understand it. That s*** is hot..."
Having been in the spotlight since she was 14 years old, Billie has grown up being scrutinised by strangers, and has often spoken with frustration about living in the public eye.
