The Daytona 500 fireball animation video is a letdown

So, so much more that could have been done here. Next Media Animation of Hong Kong and Taiwan, which specializes in quickie animations of breaking news events, whipped up a little something to explain just what the hell went wrong in the Daytona 500. Alas, it's a pretty routine crash recreation; no dancing devils or thrash-metal guitarists to be found. A disappointment, but hey, at least NASCAR is playing big in the Far East.
