'Wizard Of Oz' & Pink Floyd Mash-Up Arrives On Internet: 'Dark Side Of The Rainbow' (VIDEO)

Remember in high school when you and your friends spent that Saturday night trying to sync up "The Wizard of Oz" with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon? (Press play on the third MGM lion roar, man!) Well, now someone has gone ahead and put the two together on YouTube.

First posted by YouTube user Hisashibeta on April 18, and recently unearthed by the website I Heart Chaos, the clip -- entitled "Dark Side of the Rainbow" -- brings the denizens of Oz together with Pink Floyd. (If you've never seen this and have 101 minutes to kill, watching is highly recommended.)

Of course, the combination is nothing but a coincidence, despite what you may believe.

"It was an American radio guy who pointed it out to me," Alan Parsons, the Dark Side of the Moon audio engineer, told Rolling Stone. "It's such a non-starter, a complete load of eyewash. I tried it for the first time about two years ago. One of my fiancée's kids had a copy of the video, and I thought I had to see what it was all about. I was very disappointed. The only thing I noticed was that the line "balanced on the biggest wave" came up when Dorothy was kind of tightrope walking along a fence. One of the things any audio professional will tell you is that the scope for the drift between the video and the record is enormous; it could be anything up to twenty seconds by the time the record's finished. And anyway, if you play any record with the sound turned down on the TV, you will find things that work."

Don't let Parsons harsh your buzz, however; watch the video above.
