a beautiful "infographically" animated movie that illustrates a 1969 interview of John Lennon by a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan. armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, Jerry snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto & convinced him to do an interview about peace. using the original interview recording as the sole soundtrack, the movie titled "I Met the Walrus" suspends a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon's every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation.

the video was also nominated for an Oscar for "Best Animated Short" at the 2008 Academy Awards.
