Interested in programming? Discover Doja Cat’s interactive music video


Have you ever watched a music video and thought something like, “I wish I could change the color of the singer’s nails, I think a different shade would be better”? No? Well, okay, probably not since it’s weirdly specific. But if you’re looking for a clip that you can interact with like a visual novel or an adventure game to choose from, look no further – a new clip for Doja Cat’s song “Woman” has just been released, and thanks to Girls Who Code, viewers can replay the clip with an interactive bonus.

Girls Who Code, a nonprofit that aims to encourage more women and girls to take an interest in computers, has teamed up with Doja Cat to turn one of the singer’s music videos into an interactive experience. .

Dubbed the “very first encodable music video,” Doja Cat’s new “Woman” music video allows viewers to play around with certain aspects of the video, using lines of code they can edit.

The music video plays out the same as the original music video for the song, except this time viewers can “interact” with it by changing parts of the video, such as the color of a character’s fingernails or the music video. lighting of a specific scene. Consider picking your own adventure, but do it with coding. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

You can try the experience on Dojacode.com. Going to the site will take you to a page featuring a futuristic image of Doja Cat.

On the home page, click “Get started”, which will then take you to a page that will educate you about the different programming languages ​​you will come across. There are three programming languages, each represented by a color-coded star – yellow star for CSS, blue star for Javascript, and pink star for Python. These color-coded stars will serve as a timestamp on the clip’s progress bar, marking instances where you will have the option to change certain codes.

To get started, click on the music video. The video will stop at the time stamps marked by the colored stars, and lines of code will appear in the lower left corner of the screen. Most of the lines are grayed out, but the ones that aren’t are the ones you can play with. For example, a line of code that you can edit might change the color of Doja Cat’s nails in the clip. Type the name of the color you want to change the color of her nails for, press “Enter” and There – you will see the change reflected in the video in an instant. When you’re happy with the change you’ve made, click Continue to let the music video continue.

Another timestamp in the video allows you to change the lighting of any of the scenes. Enter the name of a city in the code and the lighting in the scene will change according to the time zone in which the city is located.

At the end of the video, you will see screenshots of how each part of the video looks after you edit the code. You have the option to download screenshots from the site if you want to share your work on social media.

Of course, the clip hardly teaches you coding and programming, but hey, it’s always an interesting experience to play around with a few lines of code and see how they alter certain parts of the clip.
