It is next level yea.

how do you go about doing this? I went down a rabbit hole once trying to find locations of famous paintings, and gave up (a night later).

you basically play Columbo? gather all hints you have, and then hit google maps?



find this!

I think it's cool that a handful of people are bent on finding a place for the sake of finding a place, which is what I like to do, too, but as it would be impossible to say "this is definitely the spot", I don't know why they would undertake that particular challenge. It sounds like they figured out the restaurant was most likely beside a gas station, neither of which still exist, and that's the best conclusion they'll ever be able to come to.

sorry, that one was a joke. it's the most searched for painting ever, with no actual real location to it.

Yeah I get the joke, but I didn't know there were people looking for it until I looked it up. I applaud their effort, but I'd say "pick your battles". With all of the locations I've found I found I try to make sure there is absolutely no way it could be some other location that just looks similar (or at least I'll admit when there is ambiguity) and with a painting I think that would be hard, because the artist could have changed all sorts of key details on a whim.

How about some fine tuning by asking people like the directors or the bandmembers...

That's fair game, IMO, I emailed a couple of the production companies for the Today video, but they weren't able to help much. The band members, if they would talk, probably wouldn't remember much and weren't even in a lot of the location shoots.

I'm sure, our handsome Linda Strawberry will tell you every detail of her last videos with the Pumpkins.

Impressive work indeed. Seriously, like PI detective grade work.

Do we know where the convenience store is in the 1979 video? Pretty sure I've seen that address/location before.

Yes its actually mentioned in the second paragraph of the op. That was the only location I didn't have to find on my own.
