The Pet Shop Boys Embed QR Codes In Latest Orwellian Video

‘Like synth pop and personal freedom? Good, ’cause the Pet Shop Boys have a new video which combines the two with the obvious appeal of personal gadgetry. Their new video for “Integral,” a critique of the Big Brother surveillance state which rides the slogan “if you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear,” embeds QR codes linking viewers directly to on-line content about issues of civil liberties. Perfect for the dozen or so civil libertarians with QR-enabled cellphones living outside of Japan. The PSBs have made all 2,408 stop-frame QRs available for download so that you can embed them in your own YouTube dystopian rant against the erosion of Britney’s freedoms.’
