Gee, thanks. Probably my favorite video posted here in a good while. Ending was kind of dissapointing though, I almost wanted to see that guy get, um, ripped up or something.

Great in deed ! I have the feeling that there's a hint at the ludicrous clip of "Call on me" at the beginning, does anybody notice that ? Anyway, to some extent, it reminds me of the clip of "the golden path" (chemical bros.) . The message seems to be the same : down with capitalism.

This video is great at first. I was really into it. I'm a sucker for robotic shit. But ultimately it's disappointing.

Like it starts off really well and I'm feeling it - I'm enjoying being there in some English town and experiencing this guy's nightmare-ish experience...and then after the intial build it just becomes repetitive. Like after the guy's 10th "I'm so frightened please don't hurt me Mr. robotic monster" expression, I become acutely aware that this guy is just on a street with nothing actually there and he's acting. The video didn't change after about halfway through. It just repeated itself. The only hint of change was when he started laughing at the end. which would have been great if he then (as Langdon said) got ripped to smithereens or smashed or something. Even though that wouldn't have any "deep" meaning it would have been a worthy ending.

To go through all the work they did and they couldn't come up with a better ending?? Time and time again I feel like music videos fall apart in this area.

I doubt this has anything to do with Capitalism. Rather I would guess it's more of like "Hey...what visual can we match to that robotic arm sound?" "how about robotic arms?"

Having said all that...I still think it's pretty great.

Yep, jdub, i understand what you mean, but concerning capitalism, just watch "the golden path" (boss.streamos.com) and remember that the chorus of the song is "i need you to believe in something" and here the guy seems to be a little desperate about robots and what they could represent.

yeah this is good but can someone please explain the intro?

there's a lot of videos in this genre; the guy running around and seeing things which are not there; paranoia and what not- this one is done pretty well.

Not sure how you read into an anti-capitalism message - Aren't factories and machines more symbolic of Communism?

I don't think there's any "message" other than Dom & Nic really like that transforming car commercial.

repetitive music + repetitive work = repetitive nightmare? or maybe its just repetitive drug use. thats why most factories need unions or high wages, the work drives people insane.

This is very good despite the end. I like the robot/factory/alienation/scifi combo. I love the dv feel with the high end 3d animation.

Hell yes! I'm always for videos with some sort of 'story' to them, even if it's as silly as a guy being chased by a hallucinatory robot car factory arm. I thought this was very well executed.

great video. mad props. had me engaged from beginning till end.

Fantastic video. Well acted and directed.

The guy was experiencing delusional attacks leading up to a schizophrenic breakdown (at the end where he is in the street laughing etc.)

it's fairly obvious.
