Fall Down a Wikipedia Hole with Their Unique 2014 Video Celebration

The end of the year is nigh, and with it comes a slew of round up videos from every site in existence.

The latest comes from Wikipedia and its interesting for a couple of reasons. It's the first time the site has put together this kind of visual representation, with the video showing the most edited pages and searches throughout 2014. And it has also been entirely created uses text and assets from Wikipedia itself.

That's pretty cool stuff, and totally in keeping with the brand. And they've also basically crafted it as a look at what happens when you fall into a Wiki-hole, where one link leads to another and you've somehow got from Jennifer Lawrence to the Vietnam War. It can totally happen.

Here's the video.

The reality of Wikipedia is still astounding, with the site giving out figures of 100 million edits this year, with page views somewhere around 250 billion. It's a unique and powerful resource, and still one of the few places online that exists entirely without ads. That's a pretty incredible thing in this day and age, so why not consider giving them a little support this Christmas on their donate page.
