Mirror's Edge-style office escape demands your eyes' attention

We're playing right into the hands (mouths?) of Biting Elbows by running this. But what are we meant to do? Their promo video for the song The Stampede is a direct video response to the Mirror's Edge trailer on YouTube, and with good reason. It's exactly like the game. Only with live action in real locations, ridiculously high production values and surprisingly impressive special effects. It also contains pixelised nudity, so be warned if that sort of thing offends you.

To be honest, we didn't really listen to the song, which probably defeats the object of a music video... but then when did that ever stop MTV? Yep, you know what they say: Videogames killed the radio star.
