The Japanese computer-generated voice Hatsune Miku (初音 ミク) from Vocaloid2 singing "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)", originally by 'The Proclaimers'. Hatsune Miku is the first voice in a series of 'character voices' produced for Vocaloid2.

The video was not originally intended to be the main point.
I just synchronized some animations with the song because I wanted to put it up here.
EDIT: And damn, it really suffered from the YouTube compression. For the first time, it also seems to have de-sync'ed the video and audio too. Anyway...

Because the voice is intended for Japanese lyrics, the voice doesn't sound 'fluent' in English, but that doesn't stop the cuteness.
(In fact, it kind of adds to it...)

There is a lesser-known CG voice doing the backing singing (on the right speaker - there's a stereo version available, check the bottom of this description). It's a voice I made using Virtual Singer on Melody Assistant. If the second Vocaloid2 voice in the character series had been released yet, I would have used it, but unfortunately that will not be released until the end of December 2007.

I know I got lazy with the video editing near the end, that's what happens when you've spent 11 days working on it.

I did not make any of the illustrations used in this video! I just synchronised them to the lyrics or beat.
If you want to know anything about what's in the video, please CHECK THE CREDITS at the end! ^^

Cypton Future Media (the creator of the Hatsune Miku voice)'s home page for their Vocaloid2 voices is here (Japanese, of course) :
Miku costs ¥15,750, which is about £74.87 or $149.70.

I've made a brief guide on how to go about getting Japanese voice on Vocaloid2 to sound like they're singing English. It's not at all straight-forward though, and some knowledge of Japanese syllables would be extremely useful. Here's the link:

Edit 2:
I made the credits in this video without knowing who made some of the images used in the video. However, AugmentedExistance has since found the artists of several other images which I used in this video. They are:
Kanzaki Hiro
Minami Juujisei
Sugiyama Shinnosuke
Ebisu Senri
