English rock band The Rifles
take aim at a life lived lukewarm in this video for "The Great Escape". Finding ones' self slave to the daily grind is a drag indeed. A suit, an office, a routine...blas to say the least. But this simple, animated fellow breaks free, getting hip and learning how to enjoy the finer fruits of life, including style, a social life, and love. Nice sentiment. Nice video. - David Pitz
