Fun With the Arcade Fire "We Used to Wait" Video

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 11:14 AM

Thats my grandmothers house down there
  • That's my grandmother's house down there

If you have not seen the incredible interactive video for Arcade Fire's "We Used to Wait" drop everything, download the Chrome browser, and do it now.

The video requires you to type in the address of the home you grew up in, which is probably very sentimental had you not moved every three months like I did while growing up. But we decided to have some fun with it and use some alternate addresses; these included the White House, that location in Pittsburgh with the LARP'ing kids, and Disneyland.

We tried to use the addresses for the Deepwater Horizon or that leper colony in Hawaii, but the site wouldn't let us. Damn.

End Hits: Too bad Google has yet to colonize Mars.
