Nickelodeon International's "SpongeBob Squarepants Iconic" Ident

Below is a high quality streaming video of Nickelodeon Internationals "SpongeBob Squarepants Iconic" ident (station ID), which Nickelodeon International commissioned Berlin creative design and animation studio "dyrdee Media" to create to celebrate SpongeBob Squarepants 10th anniversary on Nickelodeon's channels internationally. There are unconfirmed reports that Nickelodeon UK are airing Nickelodeon Internationals "SpongeBob Squarepants Iconic" ident on Nickelodeon UK HD (the "Nickelodeon HD" logo DOG (Digital On-screen Graphic/BUG) in the bottom right of the screen in the YouTube video only says "Nick HD" though).

A bit more information from dyrdee Media's official website about their Nickelodeon "SpongeBob Squarepants Iconic" ident (station ID):
nickelodeon | SpongeBob Iconic

To commemorate SpongeBobs 10th anniversary, Nickelodeon started an international spongtastic pitch for an ident. Avoiding "in your face" our surreal 60ths world shows a perfect little family out of a picture book, basking in their weekend garden paradise. Hints from bikini bottom summon you to take a second look while the boy is cutting the hedge and prepares for the final crop. Thanks to our professional tamer no snails got hurt.
