Of course I have slightly different choices/emphases—that’s part of the fun of making lists: they’re always unique to you, and always and definitely “right”—but, man, I really dig the stills they cycled through for this:

their whole write-up, in case the video blinks to “unavailable” (the video IS embedded there, and is on YouTube here)
