The mountains of Kanchanaburi were alive with the sound of classical music thanks to pianist Paul Barton.The talented musician lugged his instrument up the steep climb for a very special audience: old, injured, and handicapped elephants.

In fact, as an anti-ivory advocate, he explains that the brutally obtained material hasn't been used to manufacture piano keys in years.Barton had a particular bond to the blind elephant named Plara, who you can see directly behind the piano. The gentle giant seems to ignore his food in order to more intently listen to the music. Sadly, Plara passed away a few months after this video ...

OK Go, the alt rock band hailing from Chicago who became famous for their visually stunning videos, has wowed the world again. Just like the treadmill-dancing "Here It Goes Again" music video and their optical illusion-laden "The Writing's on the Wall," their new release is a showstopper. The video for "I Won't Let You Down" involved lots of people, umbrellas and good timing. Keeping up their reputation for tight choreography and crazy, large-scale sets, this video features a huge cast of umbrella-wielding backup dancers and aerial shots. It also features the Honda UNI-CUB, described as a "personal mobility device" that operates basically like a scooter without handlebars. We're not sure how well the UNI-CUB will catch on, but it works great in the video.
