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. The site records each cursor movement during the clip and then adds it to the video. Every 30 minutes the video is refreshed with new cursor movements added to form an ever-changing, amazing visual effect.

According to the video that’s already clocked up millions of views, the average stage fright delay was 16 seconds.
