There are tons of time-lapse videos on the internet—you know, the ones in which everything is sped up over a dramatic soundtrack—but many of the ones we've seen have been set in New York. Here's one that finally does L.A. some justice.

Filmmaker Colin Rich's "La Light" has all the right ingredients: bombastic song choice, lots of recognizable local landmarks, flashing and zipping lights, and of course some other local flavor, in this case cars and smog. Guess I should stop being mean to L.A. and calling it ugly. Well, at least as long as this video is playing.
