I am a fan of the Norwegian band of R?yksopp, but I had missed this - I caught it off John Nack's blog (Adobe Photoshop evangelist).

I haven't watched a full music video in a really long while, but this one was really worth the 4 minutes it ran - I almost wished it was longer!

Great use of information graphics, a few maps, charts, animations, and that beautiful "ligne claire" style that I am very fond of!

Oh that was fun, thanks Frax! I especially liked the way she turned the computer on (!) and the diagramatic map of Japan - is that the message of the song there? How abstract the world is becoming to us? At least for cartographers, we still are forced to deal with the minutea of real-world geographic detail from time to time - no getting around that, and its what makes this field so fascinating.
