Delta Heavy 'Ghost' by Chris Bristow
Long-defunct Microsoft software/mascot Mr. Clippy is back - and looking for revenge - in this surreal, silly and wonderfully entertaining video for Delta Heavy’s Ghost by director and VFX maestro Chris Bristow.
It goes like this: stuck in Nineties internet software purgatory, and having failed to commit suicide, Mr. Clippy, finds a glimmer of hope when he spots Shania, a more recent, voice-activated digital assistant from a world many versions away. The archaic little creature ends up on an epic quest to stay relevant in an age where apps and memes become old news from one week to the next.
