Hey, this is simply brilliant! Can someone call Jem and Thomas Waber to have this released officially? I want to see this vid on TV!

Awesome, Pedro!! I was just playing that game last night with my brother.  Is it possible to find that map online and play it?

Brilliant!
I always wondered what the point of LBP was... now I know: It's for talented folk to make music videos.
When the future\'s looking dark, we\'re the ones who have to shine...

I've watched the vid repeatedly and noted as many references as I could spot.  Most of the lyrics have some sort of visual representation, but there are plenty of other things to see here.

The character is a lion - "You're a lion!!"
BOTY flyer
Looks like he's standing on the word search
Couldn't make out chalkboard message re: gig
"Cleanliness is next to Godfreyness" embroidery
telephone box
cases of biscuits on the raft
"Here Is The News" sign: Rock Fall Re-Routes River
Danger of "Falling Down" sign
waterfall
The "Pocket Sun" tabloid: Frost* - Aliens?
"Hellay!" magazine: Frost* Wags Speak Out/Til Deaf Do Us Part
What Hobbit? sign: Inside: Best Buys for Foot Razors
Ego sign on catapult
H.I.T.N. sign: (unreadable)
H.I.T.N. sign: "Valley Road Closed"
east of "EASY"
lyric pun: battery, plane, stocking, ?? = sell your stock in jealouscide
Tomorrow's Headline - The Pocket Sun "Frost* Fan Fraudster Escapes in Tardis"
Toys 2 Go truck
MillionToys & Co.
Wonderland Experience poster
Follow Alice to Wonderland
Welcome to Know-Ware (x2)
H.I.T.N. sign: Frost? Album Back-Up Lost
sign: "You Know-Ware Your Music Back-Ups Are Safe"
song titles on falling 'dominoes'
Vote Prog Dog
Venus di Millio (Frost*erisk sculpture missing its 'arms')
pun: steely seas: steel "EC"'s (ECEC) turn to "RUST"
lyric pun: car, pet, hides, the gild E, duster
Million Ton Scales
Milliontown Tube Station logos
Platform 2 sign - unreadable
H.I.T.N. sign: unreadable
Jealouscide stock chart
"The Best Advice: Buy" (reference to Wonderland lyrics: "doing the wrong thing is the best advice")
Tardis
UORI on JM's guitar: reference to "You/I"?
"I DUG THE HOLE" on JM's shirt: reference to "I BURIED ANDY" morse code
Backward synth notes
H.I.T.N. sign: Forum Air Free Flight No Strings Attached
concert crowd wearing the new hoodies

There are a lot of literal lyric visuals I didn't list, as well.  These are just the things I spotted.  

My favourites are:

the Godfreyness embroidery
prog dog
Venus di Millio
The Best Advice
"I Dug the Hole" shirt
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around

The Ashleaze now own a PS3...  Nothing so great will be achieved

Hubby asked if Toys was on the new album (and last week he was caught singing Saline)...

I thought that was just the word CORT as in JM's guitar sponsors.

That is beyond anything I expected! Brilliant, mr Pedders ;)
You talk
You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you
I\'m sick and I\'m tired
Leave me alone...

My sons have watched it a couple of times and are clamouring for a PS3 now.  (Me too!)
