Are you still confused about the whole LEED building certification process? Well, you're in luck because Xtranormal has put together this informative little video that covers the basics. It features "Sir Leedington" (who looks an awful lot like Albert Einstein) giving the Queen of England the 411 on LEED standards and certification. It's actually rather funny and educational.
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the new Geico commericals which feature those basic-looking, computer-generated characters with monotone voices, claiming that it takes one as long to sign up for car insurance as it did to make their commercials (15 minutes). Well this video is very similar.
My favorite line: "LEED is a system to prove that your building is environmentally friendly. Otherwise any jerk can say a building is green — even if it was designed by a monkey or worse: a Canadian architect."
