Accountants Beware - Excel Music Video for AC/DC Rock n Roll Train

This year music videos saw innovations in new mediums in an effort to find something groundbreaking and new, changing context rather than content, and creating viral success rather than relying on broadcast the dying Music Video medium. The first example we saw was the amazing laser captured-filmless video for Radiohead's House of Cards.

This next example slipped through my fingers, could be that I'm not that into AC/DC, but the animation using excel as a medium is nothing short of awe inspiring. And how sweetly ironic to use such a business oriented format to showcase the rock n' rollers - it's just great.

You can check out the video in action below, and download your own copy of the excel document here.
