A contrarian music video

... mostly about movies and music -- and with a shout-out to Scanners in the middle! The band is 'lo-fi is sci-fi', the song is "The Script You Wrote is Terrible" (great line: "The script you wrote is terrible/But I like you anyway"), and the video is clever and funny and magnificently deadpan (as is the one for "March to the Sky"). It would make a good Opening Shot contribution. After all, it's just one shot. I love the way it starts, with a white screen -- and just a little piece of black (the edge of the white background) in the upper left corner. Perfect.

"Hi-fi" version here.

Thanks to Mike for passing this along.
