Ghost of Lennon punts laptops for kids

Breathtaking digital wizardry resurrects moptop

Fans of Ollie Reed's posthumous exit from Gladiator - digitally knocked together from outtakes after the hellraising thesp inconveniently popped his caligulae during filming of the Roman epic - will doubtless enjoy this punt for One Laptop Per Child, featuring a seamless performance from John Lennon:

Well, we know it's all for a good cause, but we don't think this effort will be giving Industrial Light & Magic too many sleepless nights.

According to the Beeb, the One Laptop Per Child Foundation started producing solar-powered XO laptops late last year for $199 - roughly the same amount it appears to have spent on digitally resurrecting Lennon.

Those of you unable to change the world through music can support the cause here. ®
