A long time ago (10 years) in a galaxy far, far away (1425 West Pender), our very first office had rails— six-inch shelves that ran along our cubicles. To give every Rethinker the chance to be creative, we had monthly office-wide projects and displayed them on the rails. And in true Rethink fashion, we named them... Rail Projects.
Over the years, we’ve expanded and moved. We no longer have rails. But the tradition lives on. These days, we post the projects on our website— to better share them between our Toronto and Vancouver offices.
This one showcases our favourite YouTube videos. Care to join in? Just send the link to railproje..@rethinkcanada.com.
Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No
"The Internet makes it so easy for people to remix content; take one piece of awesome content, add something awesome to it, and create even more awesomeness. The LSD No-No is the perfect example of this. All of the audio here comes from a great radio interview done with former Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis, talking about the time he threw a no-hitter while in the depths of an acid trip. The guys at NoMasTV took this and animated it with the same aesthetic and feeling of the original interview, creating one of the greatest videos the Internet has to offer.
"Also, this guy pitched a no-hitter with his mind addled by psychedelics. That has to be one of the truly legendary sporting accomplishments of all time."
