Schickes Commercial für ‘nen Druckerhersteller, in dem sie mit jeder Menge alter Hardware Bob Dylans „The Times they are a-changing“ spielen. Das Konzept ist zwar schon kräftig durchgelutscht, ist aber noch lange nicht wirklich durch, wenn’s so schick gefilmt und elaboriert aufgeführt wird, wie oben. Hier noch ein Makin-Of-Clip:

we decided to create a full-scale orchestra, made entirely out of discarded relics from the old world of printing. Printers, scanners, copiers, fax machines, modems, hard drives — a scrapheap symphony, reprogrammed and rewired to perform Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin'”. Because the old world of printing has come to an end. And this is their swansong.

To [isthisgood?] fell the arduous task of making the discarded printer relics sing, through a rigorous process of soldering, reprogramming, hacking, and re-wiring. They even custom designed their own circuit board, so as to control all of the printers from one main computer.
