A cocktail of realities

Ever so often, while I wait for another video to load on Youtube, there is a commercial or music video that I find myself completely captivated by that I have the great desire to share with others. This has happened on several occasions and so this is just the newest.

Not only is the song and beat very catchy but the mix of imagery makes me think of so many things; from some of the pieces in Animatrix (2003) and Robot Carnival (1987) to the Dungeons & Dragons film (2000) and even the music video for Dooh Dooh by Danish trance-duo Barcode Brothers. Perhaps a bit of a strange combination of sources and thoughts but I think it stems from the fact that the music video has such a blend of symbolism and imagery that it's a bit difficult to pinpoint an actual 'story line' but it causes you to come up with your own conclusion. Especially at the very end of the video, the viewer is forced to wonder what part of it all was an illusion and what was reality. This, to me anyways, mirrors the end of the Dungeons & Dragons film where it was left opened to continue but as far as I know there was no film that actually continued that particular story line. If you haven't seen it, I suggest that you go ahead and take the film for what it is: a low budget translation of a bit of geek/nerd culture with average acting but I do appreciate it for the story line though in all honesty it could have been fleshed out a little better. I think for the music video, it is open for interpretation. How it goes with the actual song, I'm not too sure but I think it's worth sharing with my readers to see their thoughts on the whole thing.
