  1. Thanks for sharing this, I need to look in on TED more often. One of my absolute favorite albums of all time. I was a bit skeptical about the video then I watched it. Very nicely done.

  2. Walt Disney did something similar – “Fantasia” (and then later, Fantasia 2000, though of course he was long dead by then, since his planned sequels to Fantasia were shelved after it did poorly upon release).
