Below, view Broken Social Scene's new video for "Forced to Love." According to YouTube, it was created with some futuristic 3-D rendering technology:
"It's an experimental 3D scanning technology that detects the displacement of a grid pattern of any object in front of it," Poon explains. "The data is then used to rebuild the object in three dimensions. Each band member's performance was scanned using this technique and manipulated in the computer to create the effect you see in the final video."
