Moby “The Day” Video

As explained by Dolimite Films, “This started out as a video contest for Moby and ended up being a labor of love that left us not caring about the competition. This is a story that we think will effect a lot of people.” Contest or no, I can’t see how they’d come up empty on the last part of that statement.
In brief, the video emotionally cuts into a very real circumstance that many people are thrown into everyday, simply asking: What would you do? What would you do if you were in a relationship and the person who you’re dedicated to was taken from you? What would you do if you found out that they were in a horrific accident, came out alive, but would never be the person that you were in love with again? What would you do if you were their lone hope for return to any semblance of a “real world”? The acting and narrative only heighten the emotions surrounding the questions, but underlying is another which is less obvious: What would you do if you unintentionally became the burden of someone you love to a point where they would no longer be the person YOU were in love with? Heavy stuff.
