Rush hour might be the ultimate combination of all the things we hate about traveling: it's crowded, slow-moving and ultimately involves interaction with other members of the public.

Well Black Sheep films have taken a typical intersection in Spain and then using some Adobe-based magic condensed a representation of an entire morning's traffic into just one minute.

The results are almost stomach-churning in their complexity. With cars, bicycles and pedestrians all appearing to come within inches of hitting each other you'll be hard-pressed to watch the entire video without flinching.

Now it's clear that some post-shooting effects have played an important role but to be honest that doesn't take away from the fact that it's still a great video and a perfect reminder that perhaps we should all just walk instead.
