Great video!
Some things get better upon closer inspection and the Michigan League is one of them, with its beautiful rooms and artwork.

The video doesn't mention it, but this awesome feature (for me at least) appears to still be a Gmail Lab you need to enable. Can't understand why this still hasn't graduated from Labs.
