There’s something very, very familiar about this video: I thought it the first time I saw it, and I’ve thought it every time since. It’s reminding me of… something, but I’ve yet to work out what that something is.

Bearing in mind Pendulum know how to do sci-fi and are clever with their references, I can’t help but wonder if I’m supposed to be thinking of something, what with the shiny triangles and the groovy jumpsuit going on there. The fact there’s a title and, you know, a font and stuff makes me highly suspicious too.


It’s probably slightly Logan’s Run, but only a little. The film: The Island, maybe (also, as an obligatory aside to that: *cough* Spares *cough*)? Cookies and blog jellybeans to anyone who can figure it out and make the itch behind my eyes every time I see this go away…

Of course, if I work it out first, I’m having the jellybeans. All of them–except maybe the green ones…



  1. Hmmm, I don’t know. I’m not getting Logan’s Run, except in a general, 1970s SF vibe. The landscape is a bit Enemy Mine, but only in a ‘A alien landscapes look a bit like a quary’ sort of a way. The caught-in-a-loop thing looks like its referencing something specific that I’m simply not familiar with.

    Very cool video, though.
