Un cube noir

The beginning The Escape Machine video created for is so Kubrick's 2001.  People huddled around a black monolith that mysteriously appears in Paris.  Three "lucky" people nervously walk up to push the red button.

A creepy HAL-like voice asks, "If you could leave now, where would you go?"

Appuyez sur le bouton.

Surprise!  Three people win billets to their destination of choice.

I love the French in how they make everything so exaggeratedly large.  Think: big-hands in Michel Gondry's The Science of Sleep.  I love the big lips that gives the lady a congratulatory kiss.
