What more can I say about YES/NO?

From their appearance on Bette Midler's Mondo Beyondo to the Coca Cola "Ice Pick" commercial to STOMP at the Orpheum Theater here in New York City, they've been a phenomenon.

Brooms is no different -- it's an incredible experience, only surpassed by live performance.

This short was Oscar-nominated, by the way, which gave the Academy an excuse to have them perform live at the 1996 Academy Awards. (They didn't win the Oscar, though -- some payoff, huh?)
