Nice Flash Animation - Radiohead Video

I found this cool Radiohead animation today on FullAsAGoog. By itself, it is a pretty cool animation, and the music is, of course, great (if you like Radiohead).

Once again, though, I'm surprised to see a video presentation without any controls. No stop. No pause. Nothing. I blogged about this a few weeks ago. I don't pretend to be a user interface expert. Nor do I pretend to be a designer. But doesn't it make sense to provide some way for your users to pause the video in case they need to step away?? This seems so brain-dead obvious I figure I must be missing something.
