The Rubber Army of WWII
Just when I think I've seen it all along comes a blast from the past that surprises me.

A short two minute clip on how artists helped in the fight against the Axis powers.

I recently saw this excellent PBS documentary on that.

That's it, that's the documentary they were talking about in the clip, thanks.

I've heard of that. It was a number of innovative camoflauge techniques of the era, including Dazzle Paint.

A similar stunt was pulled off by Walt Disney Studios to disguise the Lockheed Company's plant in Burbank, CA, from Japanese aerial bombing.
