Above It All

This is a highly stylized video made by Sally Cruikshank in 1989 for Sesame Street. Even as a kind of older boy, the style and design of her videos (not to mention the insanely catchy tune of "In and Out Crowd") just got to me. This video is really to illustrate spatial relationships (prepositions) to children, but some people interpret it as man's Babel-ish tendency to keep building himself up over everything, but there's always a supreme being above us.

That's a really trippy clip --- I don't recall ever seeing it though.

I think it's relatively newer. Don't ask me what I was doing looking at new(er) old Sesame Street clips, though :)
