Post Anyone know where this comes from?
So was browsing through YouTube the other day and stumbled upon this recording of "Embassy Lament".

It's a fun little video, but I have absolutely no idea where it comes from. It looks like it'd be part of "Chess Moves", but it's a new recording of the song that has some additional harmonies (which I don't think I've heard elsewhere). Which leads me to believe it's maybe a promotional video for one of the productions...but if you're doing a promotional video, of all the songs to pick why would you pick "Embassy Lament"?

Anyone have any idea what this video's from?
