Haha! You've been in World of Warcraft too long! That absolutely fantastic video clip remix is two weeks old Joi!

Yeah. So I was told. ;-) It does show when you're not reading other blogs. ha.

Very good clip. RKO studios actually gave a similar treatment to the Citizen Kane trailer back in the late 30's. The studio felt that audiences had to be reeled in with a lighthearted, fun-loving analysis of an otherwise serious and brooding film.

"[Narrator]:SEE! Charles Foster Kane, and his whacky antics at work!

[cut to Orson Welles]:'I think it would be fun to run a newspaper!'

[bouncy, tip-toe-through-the-tulips music in the background]
