Here’s what Jamie had to say about it:

“We decided to create the cover build video as a digital bonus for the iPad version of the magazine—something fun to kick off the issue. It offers readers a chance to go behind the scenes and see the evolution of the cover from start to finish. Our Bettman cover (October 8, 2012 cover date) was the first. This one is now online at and YouTube and is blowing up the Twitterverse. It’s a slick addition, that’s all ours, done for fun to create buzz. I think it works, how can you not smile after watching that!?”
