The Google Maps Oil Monster

I love this animated short film by Patrick Jean. In 'Motorville' the map of an American city comes alive and undertakes a quest to find oil to feed its streets, highways and freeways.

The vector map data used in the animation comes from OpenStreetMaps but I think you'll agree the film has been inspired by the visual design of Google Maps and Street View.

I'd guess a little inspiration from the new sim city with the oil flowing through the streets as well
