New airport construction video opts for indie-esque soundtrack rather than smooth jazz

Yes, gone are the days when fair-use jazz music would accompany footage of construction at the Atlanta airport's international terminal. The maestros behind Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's quite awesome YouTube account have uploaded yet another video of the new $1.5 billion concourse's progress. This time we're treated to a tune that sounds ripped from a 1993 skateboarding video which features acoustic guitar and distorted bass — a little ditty which my colleague Besha Rodell described as "the elevator jazz version of indie rock."

Anyways, here's another peek at the new international terminal, which is scheduled to open this spring so long as the imminent flood of lawsuits filed by disgruntled airport vendors doesn't cause a delay.

UPDATED, 1:02 p.m. (because I forgot): Also, it's worth celebrating how wonky the airport's social media folks get in the YouTube comments, which on other accounts are traditionally are a cesspool of ignorance, racism, and filth.

Probably the cutest thing I'll see all day.
