Think Twice, Search Once

Before thinking that you might want to upload a video for discussion, search to see if it's already posted. I know this sounds obvious, but a few weeks I searched for this Daft Punk Video (Around the World) directed by Michel Gondry and found nothing. Now here it is. Like animation and information design come to life - Gondry assigns a different set of characters for the different components of the track (giants are the bassline, bathers the synth keyboard, mummies are the percussion, skeletons the guitar hook) , all in front of a light display programmed by Gondry's brother. So simple and logical and funny, it makes you want to laugh, cry and dance all at once.
