    The imagery with the white crosses is very effective. Great work.

    Expertly made video…mumble mumble… public funding..mumble mumble…directed from the 9th floor.. mumble mumble…socialist conspracy..

  4. what he’s done is take another vid that has planes turning into coffins (i recognise it from somewhere) and overlay it on the billboard, added the white searchlight lines.. it’s really a very clever piece of work

    From the movie of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, specifically Goodbye Blue Sky

    F**k, I hate Pink Floyd… and yet I’ve seen them (and Coldplay)

    hey Paul – do you like them a little bit better when they are used to such good effect (like this?)

    Like MP, don’t get Youtube here either… but I imagine it’s not as good as the little dancing cossaks – for better or worse, it holds a special place in NZ’s broadcasting history, right up there with the Goodnight Kiwi.

    Or my favourite line on NZ TV:

    “It doesn’t give my opponents much time either.”

    hey Paul – do you like them a little bit better when they are used to such good effect (like this?)

    Yeah, yeah. I do. Clever chap that Rob.
