If you've ever wondered what it would feel like to peer down on Earth as a deity figure, this 'God's Eye View' video may just be the closest you will ever get to that goal.

Featuring footage from famous Hollywood films, 'God's Eye View' compiles straight-down shots from movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Matrix Revolutions and Zombieland. The compilation is then played over one of my favorite Yeah Yeah Yeahs songs 'Down Boy' and offers viewers a unique perspective for the duration of the four-minute video.

'God's Eye View' was made by Vimeo user Brian Carroll, whose an editor based in Philadelphia. His orchestration of clips to coincide with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs track makes for quite a sobering visual and auditory experience. Stats for Peculiar Perspective Movie Montages Trending: Older & Chilly
