Did You See This? The End of the World, Remixed

This unsettling but danceable remix of end-of-the-world moments from the movies was made by Electic Method over a year ago, but it has been making the rounds online as people look forward to tomorrow: Dec. 21, 2012, which people for years have (wrongly) pinpointed as the date of an apocalypse supposedly (but not really) predicted by the ancient Mayans.
