The video compilation runs two minutes, 46 seconds and features initial quick shots of Red Bull space diver Felix Baumgartner, South Korean viral sensation Psy and a deep-sea diving James Cameron. And for the third year in a row, Google’s Zeitgeist: Year in Review was put together by an agency right here in LA.
Released Wednesday and linked on the Google search home page, the slick montage is about to cross the two and a half million views mark. It was directed by WHiRLED founder-creative director Scott Chan and produced by his colleague there Jenna Cedicci.
Before launching Whirled in 2009, Chan created content for HBO’s digital studio HBOlab. In addition to Google, other WHiRLED clients have included Lady Gaga and BBC America.
