For those about to calculate, we salute you.... Believe it or not, the most recent AC/DC video (what, you didn't know they were still around and had a new album out?) is being an Excel spreadsheet. I kid you not. Sez Wired:
Phil Clandillon and Steve Milbourne, who work at a digital design boutique division of Sony/BMG in London, have put together what they call "the world's first music video in Excel format," for AC/DC.

They decided on this unusual format because they wanted the video to penetrate even the most Draconian corporate firewalls. After all, who can't receive an Excel spreadsheet?
So I guess you can create a pivot table and see if those dirty deeds were in fact done dirt cheap. Download the actual spreadsheet here. Sigh: it doesn't work on a Mac. But here is a YouTube promo video for the video (?):
