DIVERSION: LCD Soundsystem and Miles Davis YouTube Mash-Up

It's a screen shot of a Mac (of course)...

The cursor clicks play on a Kermit The Frog lipsync version of LCD Soundsystem "New York I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down" at YouTube.

And the video of each band member, with their isolated audio mix gets uploaded to YouTube every day. And you wait for the fans to figure out that if they hit play on each one at the right time they wind up with a full performance.
