The Arcade Fire Create Interactive Music Video Involving YOUR Hometown

With the help of Google Web developers, The Arcade Fire have created an interactive video for track “We Used To Wait” that incorporates visual data of your hometown using Google Maps, Street View, and the 3D graphics engine within HTML5. Playing on the titular theme of their album “The Suburbs,” the band has given the internet a wave of intense nostalgia. I couldn’t even use my childhood address (street view hasn’t come to Trenton, Ontario), but just using the first apartment I ever lived in was enough to get me all misty eyed. It sounds like I’m exaggerating, but its honestly one of the more emotionally stimulating uses of technology I’ve ever come across… Check it out for yourself here, but make sure you close all your other applications first cause its a bit of a crash monster.
