I recently became aware of Rob Dougan after searching for a piece of music that had caught my attention in a re-watching of The Matrix. That piece turned out to be "Clubbed to Death" and was made into the most inspiring and visually arresting music video I've ever seen.

I think the best video set to another version of Clubbed to Death is the Lincoln LS commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vknwHj2VXoQ.

"Clubbed to Death 2" is a completely different song. I find it confusing that he called it "2" rather than finding a different name. It's much too derivative - more like warmed over Chopin with a synth and drum beat, than an original song. I prefer the driving power of the "original."

Anyway, the point was the music video, which I think is a mini masterpiece on it's own. I thought I would share it on this forum because it would appeal to an Objectivist sense of aesthetics - in fact that was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw it. The first video could easily be re-titled "The Hero's Journey." The way the director illustrates that concept is incredibly impressive.

Any thoughts on the videos?
