Title: Promoting Bitcoin - List your YouTube videos, data visualisations etc.

[Foreword: if there's already a thread for this, just tell me and I'll get involved there and delete this one]

People seemed to like hearing Trace Mayer on BBC Newsnight last week - mainly it seems because he was clear, well-informed and came across as a intelligent and eloquent advocate for Bitcoin.
There aren't enough people like him out there, and I also don't think there is enough access to clear material that explains the benefits of Bitcoin to the average person.
So, I want to put together a list here of animations / infographics / YouTube videos / data visualisations that do well in this area.

I also want to put together some animations myself to do my bit to help with promotion and education - if anyone's interested in collaborating please PM me.

I'll update the list at the top of this thread. Here's the kind of thing I'm talking about:

What is Bitcoin? (weusecoins.com) - YouTube Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Um63OQz3bjo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Um63OQz3bjo)

Surprised to see no takers after one month. There must be an existing thread out there?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_hz7TyQ_bs - an explainer video by Daily Reckoning. 2m50s. More detailed than the 2011 WeUsecoins video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um63OQz3bjo), and more up-to-date (no longer advertises mining as being amenable to ordinary hardware). Published April 2013.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FizcEl4lgtk - animation explainer video pitching SpendBitcoins after 2:53. The theme is a dodo bird (Bitcoin will make fiat go the way of the dodo). Captions explaining the actual situation with anonymity and fees. The least technical video of the three. Published April 2013.
