Video Clip Made By Viewers Mouse Movements

Dutch band Light Light has created what might be the coolest, interactive, crowd-sourced video clip yet for their song ‘Do Not Touch’. The music video asks viewers to follow the animations on screen using their cursors, getting them to answer questions such as “where are you from” by pointing on a map.
