A wonderful story about collaboration: 

While creating the awesome new arrangement of the song 'Feeling Good' for the WINK sound track, the German band Kupfer! fell in love with the film and asked to use clips of it in their brand new music video, entitled 'Normalsein ist Wahnsinn' ('Being Normal is Insane').  

NOTE: Spoiler Alert!
