David Knight - 27th Oct 2008

Not that there hasn't been a lot of overhead videos recently but this could be the final word. Or rather, words.

Toben is your man for marshalling groups of people into creating 'live visual effects', often involving people-puppetry. But this is him doing the words-made-from-people thing, and he completely nails it.

Alll done with much good-naturedness and Alphabeat's signature joie de vivre. Spread the love.
