Attaching a video of yourself with your job application

There are tons of UX, Interaction design jobs in North America and Europe. I have many times thought about applying for jobs in Canada. Since I am based in Europe the recruiter may not be able to "invite" me for an interview, so everyting has to be done via a long distance call.
My creativity lately wants me to send a video of myself where I present myself and maybe even record the current work location and get some recommendations from current colleagues.
The idea is that this videofile can be attached to the email along with my resume.doc file and cv.doc file.
What do you guys think? I am not a reqruiter but I have a feeling that having information about a candidate in a visual format, may be accepted by reqruiters? Any reqruiters present?
