Arcade Fire + Google Earth = AWESOME

Note: this is just a screenshot and not actually a link, so don't click on it. The link is at the end of the post.

Normally I'd save something like this for a TILTw post, but this is too cool. Now I'm not one of those people who finds all these rad links before everyone else. In fact, this may have been around for awhile so I apologize if it's old news. However, my host mom just showed it to me this morning.

Arcade Fire and Google Chrome got together to make an interactive film, called The Wilderness Downtown.  You go to the website, enter in a street address and it pulls images from Google Earth to incorporate into the film.  World's most awesome music video? I think so. 

Downside: you must have Google Chrome installed to view and it doesn't work if the address you enter does not have Street View photos taken of it. I had to use an old TN address.

Check it out:
