A Human Clock in Flash

“What time is it? It’s half-past Fred!” Each numeral in this flash clock uses from one to four people to create the shape. The flash animation sequences the clock. Nice creative work and there’s a link to the originator of the human number images. Fun and inventive.

Stuff like Levon and Madman Across the Water. Elton and Bernie have put together a new bunch of songs about a music history we know and love. I will add a link later.
