    Pac-Man references aside, I really thought the sound was astounding. From the wiki: "McLaren created the soundtrack of the film by scratching the edge of the film, creating various blobs, lines, and triangles which the projector read as sound."

    Perhaps I haven't explored enough experimental film, but I haven't really been introduced to that technique before. McLaren created an impressive soundtrack with no instruments; how cool is that?

    What a wonderful short! Very inspirational for filmmaking, the sound was charming too.

    Watching this i couldn't help thinking it's a shame that decades after and with more technology, places like Youtube never really lived up to producing lots more of this sort of creativity.
