You know what the daily commute looks like from behind the wheel of your car, as you stare down all those hateful red taillights in front of you. Here's what it looks like mapped out using data submitted by users of the traffic mobile app Waze, set to trippy electronic music.

It's much more fun to watch the bottlenecks and hazards pop up on the screen than on the road, isn't it? We're wondering how things will look mapped out this weekend, for Will & Kate's visit...and next weekend, for the dreaded Carmageddon. Oh the color and lights! (Speaking of Carmageddon, Waze and ABC have teamed up to keep people updated about traffic conditions July 16-17. Definitely worth checking out if you're opting not to just plain stay the heck away from the Westside.)
