Chrissi, it's a compilation of a large amount of film clips, all of them showing people from behind walking ahead in various settings.

Heath as the Joker is one of them.

Someone have an alternative link to this video? As so often, it's blocked due to copyrights.
Or at least give me an idea what's it about? Thanks. :-*


Sorry, Chrissi--

It's a VERY clever compilation of hundreds of film clips, each no more than a few seconds long, of shots of the backs of people walking away from the camera--and the editing cleverly keeps the rhythm, the mood and sometimes the words of the lyrics of the song "Twenty Five Miles" ("Walkin!") by Edwin Starr, and of the feeling of motion away, seemingly infinitely.
 
Some of the clips, again no more than a few seconds long, are interesting puzzles--until you realize you are seeing Heath as the Joker, or James Franco as Aron Ralston, or Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Inception  FROM THE BACK, walking--sometimes edited as if the stride is continuing from clip to clip. Again, VERY clever!



Here's the song--I hope this  isn't copyrighted also!

C'mon feet, start movin'
Got to get me there, owww

Hey hey, uh huh, huh, huh, huh, oh
Uh huh, huh, huh, huh, huh, yeah, oh

Twenty-five miles from home, girl
My feet are hurtin' mighty bad
Now I've been walkin' for three days
And two lonely nights
You know that I'm mighty mad, huh

But I got a woman waitin' for me
That's gonna make this trip worthwhile
You see she's got the kind
Of lovin' and a kissin'
A make a man go stone wild

So I got to keep on walkin', mmm hmm, huh
I got to walk on, oh ho ho
I-I-I-I-I'm so tired
But I just can't lose my stride

I got fifteen miles to go now
And I can hear my baby callin' my name
It's as if as though I'm standin' at her front door
I can hear her that doggone plain

Now I'll be so glad to see my baby
And hold her in my arms one more time, huh
Now when I kiss her lips
I'll turn a back over flip
And I'll forget about these feet of mine

I got to keep on walkin', hey
I got to walk on, let me tell ya y'all
I-I-I-I-I'm so tired, huh
But I just can't lose my stride

Owww

C'mon feet don't fail me now
I got ten more miles to go
I got nine, eight, seven, six, six, six
I got five more miles to go now
Over the hill just around the bend, huh

Although my feet are tired
I can't lose my stride
I got to get to my baby again
I got to keep on walkin', mmm hmm, hey
I got to walk on

Wait, let me tell ya y'all

I-I-I-I-I'm so tired, huh
But I just can't lose my stride

Walkin' yeah, huh
I got to walk on
Let me tell ya y'all
I see my baby just across the fence...

And Chrissi, it's a frustrating video because so many of them are impossible to identify as they're shot from behind and only last a couple of seconds. I recognized JGL and James Franco right away, as well as Heath thanks to John's alert, and maybe a few others -- a couple from The Shining, for sure, I think possibly one or two from the Coen Bros.' True Grit. But the majority are clips you can almost identify -- or feel like you could, if you just had a couple more seconds or tiny bit more visual information.

I bet there are film buffs out there who are deciphering them as we speak and will pride themselves on identifying all or almost all of them.

James Marsters as Spike from Buffy the vampire slayer is in it. Gliding down the stairs

Brad Pitt is in it as Tylor in Fight Club.

Mickey Rourke is in as The Wrestler

Of course it is copyrighted and I can't see it. :P
But thanks to your info, I found a live version on youtube which I can indeed watch.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6nRKvQs2Fg[/youtube]



With all the info and talk I'm sorry I can't see the vid. F*ck GEMA >:(. GEMA is the only institution in Germany which regulates perfomance rights. It got really worse in March 2009, when "Music videos for major label artists on YouTube have been unavailable in Germany since the end of March 2009 as GEMA sought to raise its fee charged to Youtube to 12[3] euro cents per streamed video. This would mean monthly payments to GEMA of nearly 700,000 US dollars, a fee a Youtube spokesman described as "prohibitive." (from wikipedia)

Thanks for the tip. :-* But there's an identifier in the IP which marks me as German. :-\
