  1. Not infographics! It's a traditional animation. A good one, because of a good idea and development. But not infographic's, obvious.

  2. Yeah, I'd also say it's not infographics. There's no data being visualised, and it does not explain a concept or a process. But it does visualise the examples given by the voice-over. It's visualisation, perhaps?
