Education Inbound (will use for Bloodsheds 1-3 as a return promo)

Post  Steven Rausch on Wed Jun 21, 2017 6:16 pm

A long, black road winds through a sun-bleached desert. The sky above is clear and brilliantly blue, and the sands on either side of the road seem to stretch into infinity. Aside from a few small rocks cropped together here and there in the dunes, there's no sign of dimension anywhere in the scene; the sand, road, and sky all flatten together on the distant horizon.
-
A desert horned lizard scampers cautiously into the road from the sands on the left, and as it does so, a cloud of dust and sand begins to bloom on the horizon behind it. The lizard scurries into the middle of the road, positioning itself just over the double yellow line as the muffled sound of guitar riffs and electronic claps becomes faintly audible in the distance.
-
With the cloud of dust and electronic sounds growing behind it, the horned desert lizard clearly senses impending danger. As its head twitches and tries to determine where the threat is coming from, the cloud has grown immensely, clearly coming in closer from the horizon. It grows larger by the second, and with it, the music grows noticeably louder and the sound of a mechanical roar can be discerned.
-
The lizard seems ready to flee, but just as it turns its head toward the deafening storm, the upturned dust cloud overtakes the small creature, exploding into the shape of a large yellow school bus tearing down the solitary desert road. Queens of the Stone Age's "The Way You Used to Do" can now be heard loud and clear, seemingly following the bus on its sun-blasted journey.
-
Queens of the Stone Age: "We run 'til no one could find us.
-
Girl, we outrun everyone.
-
-
-
But it doesn't matter now;
-
Just come and love me how,
-
Like the way you used to do."
-
The camera now focuses on the side of the bus, keeping pace with it as it tears through the sandy wastes on all sides, travelling much faster than a vehicle presumably carrying children should be.
-
Children indeed are riding in the back of the bus, as evidenced by their tossing papers out the windows on all sides with tiny hands. Signs hung roughly in the windows say crass things like "Butt" and "Farty Mcfart Fart." For all intents and purposes, though they're clearly in some semblance of danger, the children seem to be having the time of their young lives.
The camera hovers next to the bus, doing its best to keep up with the vehicle's breakneck pace. As it careens through the desert, the bus passes odd artifacts in the sand every so often:
-
A sign on a crooked post, faded by sunlight and years of wear, reading "You're Not Worthy" in dark crimson paint.
-
-
-
A long boxer's robe - red, black, and fuzzy - crumpled in a heap, half-buried on the side of the road.
-
-
-
A small desktop plaque, sticking straight out of the sand, just enough of it showing to read "MR. THE -" etched in its golden faceplate.
-
-
-
A large air cannon, buried amidst a pile of cotton that looks like it could be t-shirts, but it's hard to tell for certain.
-
-
-
The camera now floats higher and shifts its view to the rear of the bus, just catching the roof of the yellow bullet as it speeds out of the desert and toward a city looming on the horizon. It continues to kick dust up on all sides as it shoots forward, and as it closes on the city, the domed roof of an arena grows out of the skyline, the seeming destination for the bus, the children, and the so-far anonymous driver. The camera lowers itself slightly, allowing the back door of the bus to come into view. In the dust and grime caked on its glass surface, someone has scrawled with a finger the following: "CiR or BUST."
-
The camera stays in place and allows the bus to shoot forward, hurtling toward the city in the background. Queens of the Stone Age continue to play as the bus fades into the distance and the scene fades to black.
-
Queens of the Stone Age: "Used to do,
-
Like the way you used to do,
-
Come and love me now
-
Like the way you used to do,
-
Like the way you used to do."
