Although he passed away before his time, Heath Ledger left an impressive legacy behind--but it's not just his top-tier acting work that should be remembered. Ledger famously directed the animated anti-whaling music video for Modest Mouse's song "King Rat." He didn't live to see it completed, but he would've been proud if he had--the video is dark, affecting, satirical. See for yourself after the jump.

If you download the video on iTunes over the next month, the proceeds will go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society--the infamous anti-whaling group. Rest in peace Heath, and thanks for the good work.
