As the nation reacts in wildly varying ways to the news that 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. Navy Seals, the ensuing media saturation has done little to go beyond the raw, revenge-type aspects of the event, as depicted by countless images of Americans celebrating in the streets, chanting “USA! USA!,” waving flags, etc. etc.
So, like Tocqueville before them (but with computers), Taiwan-based Next Media Animation have neatly provided a perceptive interpretation of the American psyche as it relishes bin Laden’s death. Watch at your own peril.
