This seems so obvious a matchup that I was initially sure that someone else had already done it. I don't work much with non-metal, but Orgy kicks pretty hard here, and Lain is more than awesome enough to make up for it. My capture card died halfway through, so I was forced to work from the first 4 eps only, if in superlative quality. Considering that the band has stated that this song was inspired by the scarier aspects of otaku culture, it's amazing that nobody got to this video before I did. More points fer me!
Of course, this was only the first use of this combo as of when the video was actually produced, at the end of July 2001. Since then, every single video using Orgy and Lain has been done using this song.
Shin Hats Self-Grade: A. In terms of video quality, this is the best I'd yet done, the song works, and the whole package came together very nicely. My processor wasn't quite up to the task of sync in the editor, so there are a few slipped hits that could have been better. Hence not perfect.

The local video download has been corrected to the actual video. Get it while it's hot.
There are also a few additional notes about the video and the process of getting the source together offsite here.
