Give your rickrolling ways a boost with trippy yooouuutuuube YouTube upgrade

If you like this video, you haven't seen anything yet. Keep reading ...

This is just a nice, laid-back little electronica ditty called "Alice" with a music video cut from the Disney classic "Alice in Wonderland." (Good luck housing your collection of cease-and-desist letters on that, by the way.)

The music video for my song 'Alice', an electronic piece of which 90% is composed using sounds recorded from the Disney film 'Alice In Wonderland'.

It's a pleasant enough distraction from an Australian musician who calls himself Pogo. But you are missing a hypnotically trippy treat if you don't check out this version of the video. Give it a minute to load, stare away and feel your innards go all quivery.

Maybe that's how he plans to distract the Disney lawyers before they run a flaming spear of copyright justice through his heart. Good luck with that, Pogo.

But the real fun here is that you can do the same thing with your videos. No, not steal Disney imagery, but make the layered rows of visual coolness. It's thanks to this new site/service called yooouuutuuube.

You basically just plug in a YouTube video url - or you can pick at random - and it filters the video into a constantly evolving set of stills that flash in and out at video speed while the soundtrack plays in the background.

It looks like some folks have discovered the potential in blowing new life into rickrolling with it, but there is a neverending potential for timewasting video repurposing here - try an Obama chat, for instance.

Or some really cool, seizure-inducing music video work like this and this, both of which came via Reddit.

So upgrade your Flash and make sure your computer is fairly zippy and jump in.

A look at President Obama, yooouuutuuubeized ...
