6 words, not seconds…. This video managed to stay within the rules while still making a video that was impactfully entertaining and most incredibly… very, very short.

We’re not in Kanto Anymore. This video went far and wide to make dreams into reality with its impressive creative talent and design skills.

Master of light and glass, DaVinci would be proud. This video displayed the very best images. You could screencap the shots and make an art exhibit out of them. Bravo!
