I worked together with Reinier Peersman, I directed the video while he was the art director.
It is a song with an old Americana vibe. It starts happy like a stereotype country song, driving through the desert free to go wherever you want to go. But along the way the driver begins to doubt if he's on the right path, he finds the road to be darker and much tougher then he expected, and he doesn't know how to go on.
In this film the man is driving with the masses all in the same direction, until his car breaks down. He forced to walk, and as all the cars reach their destination he is still stuck walking in the desert. He's alone and lost. In the dark he finds is own path, which leads him to be the only witness to what happens to all the other cars, before he wanders on.
