Holy Sheep – LED Artwork of Sheep Herding [Suspect]

In a virtual world full of fans, circles, followers and friends, today we celebrate the world’s greatest follower: the sheep. Consider: A clever group of Welsh hill farmers dress their flock of unsuspecting sheep up in LED lights and — with the help of some seriously talented/obedient/well-trained border collies — create moving art on a hillside and film it from a distance. Check it out:

Matt Smith, the co-founder of the ad agency The Viral Factory who shot the video for Samsung, interviewed for a Telegraph article not long after the video blew up. He admits to some post-production trickery, but those are real sheep, real dogs and the real Welsh national sheep herding champion Gerry Lewis guiding actual sheep around into position. [The Mona Lisa bit was their wink-wink, nudge-nudge moment, apparently.]

Kudos to Smith.

For a closer look at a master sheep herder at work, check out this video of Brendan Ferris of the Kells Sheep Centre.

I believe this was done as a special for the Animal Planet Channel. It was done for their “Dogs 101″ show featuring the Border Collie. You might be able to find it on YouTube.

This video is not suspect. This is tried, convicted and sentenced to death.
