Somehow I expected something a little less..."arty"?

Am I missing something, or are nanoflies so small - a billionth of an inch - that the only way to convey them is via surrealism? With music from what sound like the German metalists Rammstein?

I confess this sorta horrified me. This is... technological progress?



Okay, that was totally disappointing.
