Have You seen the Bad Apple?

I gave a lecture to my first year students yesterday which introduced their 'Narrative' project.
As part of that, I played them a video that I think is a magical piece of stop-motion animation; apparently made from 6,566 still photos of printed bitmaps

Here is the blurb from http://pinktentacle.com/
The creator, "shige-ruuu," says he made the video without using photo-editing software.
The images were captured with a webcam, and the effects were achieved by changing the camera position and adjusting the focus, brightness, zoom, exposure and gain.

The song is "Bad Apple!!" (arranged by Masayoshi Minoshima, vocals by nomico)
The animation is on you tube
