A Music Video Without Music, a Fine Example of Foley

This may come as a surprise, but most of the ambient sounds you hear in movies and TV shows doesn't actually come from the ambient environment. Usually, the sound engineers and audio mixer add them in post-production. This is done because it's just impossible to record all of the rustling and shuffling and screeching and cracking without capturing the background noise as well. This practice is called "foley". You can learn more about it in this video.

So what would it be like if the music from a music video was removed and replaced with just a foley track? That is what the youtuber, Mario Wienerroither, did in the video above.

For comparison, here's the original music video of Chandelier by Sia:

Which one do you think is better?
