Steve Smyth states, “The video depicts a wild ride into the not so distant future, where we find our rebel team entering a virtual world to reach their leader, the Hacker, only to be interrupted by the world leader the Cynic, busy blanketing all media with his driveling, meaningless rhetoric, with points inside his speech aimed at making our world seem hopeless without him and his leadership. In comes our hero the Hacker to spread the message of hope and independent thinking outside of conformity, and the war ensues, complete with a virus sent via virtual reality. Who will win? Watch and find out!”
