This is an old video, but it’s an impressive technical achievement and, just as importantly, a solid jam with which to start off your day. Hard rock group AC/DC’s music video for “Rock ‘N Roll Train” was converted into Excel spreadsheet format by Sony/BMG. Why? Not only because everybody likes animated ASCII art, but because even the stodgiest corporate stronghold allows Excel.

“Basically, it’s come about because we recognized that a lot of people have fairly restrictive internet and security policies at work,” Clandillon told “What we really liked was that we could actually subvert the corporate firewalls by including AC/DC’s music in an Excel spreadsheet, because that’s allowed through every corporate firewall there is.”

You can download the spreadsheet here, though it may not work for Macs.
