This video is a tribute to Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker in the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight.
After seeing the film last night (17th July Perth Australia Time) I must say that Heath Ledger as the Joker is without a doubt the greatest villian, and possibly the greatest character, ever to appear in cinema. It had my captivated from beginning to end. A definate choice for the Oscar.

When it was announced that Heath Ledger would be cast as the Joker in 2006 I was very sceptical, like many others, if he was the right choice for the role. But when the first official image appeared on the internet in early 2007 all my doubts were blown away by the amazing and horrifying direction that they taking this iconic character, and probably the greatest villian in history. As more and more footage and voice snippets were released I was assured that Ledger had surely made this role his own. The tragic fact that he passed away shows the world has lost a truely dedicated and inventive actor.

The animation at the end is not part of the tribute video, but I thought while I'm uploading a video why not include it. You may like it/ you may not. You don't have to watch it.
