I'll admit it. Throughout the first video I was thinking "Ok, so what? Anyone can scribble with a sharpie on their wall. I mean, this is a great song and everything but drawing random lines on a wall in sharpie? That doesn't seem very cre-" and then the cameraman stepped back and I saw the finished product. Awesome.

I just wish I could see a photo of it or something as the right side was a kinda washed out.

I can't believe I just spent 10 minutes watching someone Etch-a-Sketch the globe.

That's nothing, I just wasted 10 minutes watching Pee-Wee Hermann with David Letterman.

I can't believe I just spent 10 minutes trying to come up with a layman's-terms justification for why the 2nd video got my adrenaline pumping.

I can't believe I fully plan to grab the code and do this myself, for a smaller subset of points.
