If you’re a fan of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, you’re probably familiar with dancing zebras. Traffic cops in Brazil are using crossing guards dressed up in zebra costumes to get drivers to slow down for crosswalks. After creating their own dancing zebra on a green screen, the show invited people to use it in situations judged to require it. I quote:
Dancing zebras improve every situation, so feel free to add this footage of a zebra dancing in front of a green screen to a video of your choice. Share your creations using #JustAddZebras”.
Toronto indie band In My Coma took Oliver up on that offer for the video of their new song, “Beautiful Mind.” In this case, a dancing zebra is exactly what was required.
