What Kanye West and National Geographic used from Envato

Our weekly look at 5 famous places Envato items have been used.

Welcome to the Famous 5! Our weekly look at 5 Envato items used in famous places.

Kanye West

Kanye West uses an Envato item right at the beginning of his music video for the song “Wolves”.

The video doubles as a campaign ad for French fashion house, Balmain’s new season line.

RockfordMedia’s VideoHive item, Moving Under Trees With Full Moon At Night opens this stylish video. It features, among other things, West and Kim Kardashian with tears streaming down their faces. It also includes climpses of featured artists, Vic Mensa, and Sia.

The video has been viewed over 20 million times on YouTube.

Line

With over 600 million users, Line is one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world.

So popular, in fact, that the brand’s sticker characters have gained their own fan base, and now star in the company’s videos.

This one stars Choco, a female bear who is the sister of Brown, the brown bear in the video. Here, from what I can gather, she goes over to his house and takes a selfie. They can’t decide what to watch on TV, and then it turns into some sort of montage of all the selfies she’s been taking? Or is going to take? And it turns into some sort of reality TV show centered around her. Maybe…

For all I know, this is a gripping drama that I’ve completely misinterpreted. But what I can tell you is that it’s been very popular on YouTube, it’s insanely cute, and from this weird selfie sequence onwards it’s using Envato Author, Music2Sync’s AudioJungle item, Ultimate Fashion Electro in the background.

Megan Nicole

Singer and actress, Megan Nicole is using an Envato item in a music video.

The YouTube star who came to fame posting covers on the video platform uses AndySlatter’s AudioJungle track, Western Hero at the beginning of this clip for her song, “Mascara” which has over 2 million views. 

Mercy For Animals

Mercy for Animals is an international organization dedicated to preventing animal cruelty and compassionate food choices.

It uses ilovemedia-es’s AudioJungle item, Sad Piano in this video which is not for the faint of heart, showing distressing images indicating how animals are treated by the food industry. It pleads with viewers to think about where their meat comes from.

It’s gotten 3.1 million views on Facebook.

National Geographic

Finally, the National Geographic Store is being powered by a ThemeForest item.

FlatLayers’, Caress – A Comprehensive WordPress Theme is slick and does a great job of bringing the blog’s content to the fore.

It’s little wonder with items like ours why Nat Geo keep coming back for more.
