Analysis-
From writing the technical analysis and watching the video numerous amounts of time it is clear to see that the percentage of disjunctive, establishing shots and shots that feature the artist are spread out giving a good proportion of shots to the artist (Willy Moon) breaking the fourth wall.
The shots are usually between 1-3 seconds long which gives a very fast cutting rate which is incorporated with a mixture of static shots to tracking shots which go well with the pace of the video.
In terms of the rule of third everything is proportionate in the way the star is always present in the video and it is nicely balanced.
