Yes, 2013 is the International Year of Statistics. Thus a video was made.
This is a video infographic about pizza delivery in Manhattan. This is another good way to make data tell a story.
This is a very quick and informative video about data science. What is data science? What makes a good data scientist?
DJ Patil does an excellent job answering both those questions.
Here are his answers for what makes a good data scientist:

Jeff Hammerbacher, founder and Chief Scientist of Cloudera, gives a nice talk about data science. He explains what he has done in the past, and what he plans to do in the future.
It is the second video, I have posted recently, emphasizing the importance of data science for more than just advertising. Jeff is getting involved in a Medical School to see how data can help.
Note: The video is about 45 minutes, but it contains some really good information.
Alasdair Allan gives a very entertaining talk. I love what he did with his hotel room lock, or rather what he “absolutely not under any circumstances …” did with his hotel room lock.
