"Hi life"

I like the animation film that features the song as much as "Hi Life" itself. It's been inserted here thinking of all the students who have both studied and struggled to defend their opinions, especially before the holidays... you surely deserve a little rest and poetry ;o)

This amazingly beautiful video clip
