The darkly funny and sumptuously constructed Plaid video was by Pleix:
"Pleix is a virtual community of digital artists based in Paris. Some of us are 3D artists, some others are musicians or graphic designers. This website is the perfect place to share our latest creations."
So it is. They have an archive of Quicktimes with their completely brilliant short films and promo vids for electronica, many of which seem inspired by information design (although the Kid606 one isn't but is quite beautiful.) Fabulous stuff. Regard!.
