Alright folks, ever been thinking about directing your own music video and how freaking incredible it would be? Here's your chance to contribute.

The rules:

I will set up the video with a pretty generic opening. In your follow up posts you may add a sentence to continue the direction. You cannot make it a run on sentence, meaning

"THE HERO JUMPS FROM THE BACK OF THE HORSE AND THEN RUNS UP THE CASTLE STEPS AND LIKE CUTS THE HEADS OFF LIKE 50 DUDES THEN DOES A FRONT FLIP ONTO THE BACK OF THE DRAGON THEN LIKE BITES HIS EAR OFF BECAUSE HE GETS DOWN LIKE TYSON THEN AS THE DRAGON IS WRITHING IN PAIN THE HERO USES HIS MOMENTUM TO LIKE BOUND INTO THE PRINCESSES WINDOW AND LIKE USES HER VEIL TO FASHION A PAPOOSE VERY SIMILAR TO THE THOSE USED BY NATIVE AMERICANS THEN STUFFS HER IN IT AND THEN LIGHTS A STICK OF DYNAMITE FROM THE CIGAR HE'S BEEN SMOKING THE WHOLE TIME THEN TOSSES IT DOWN THE STAIRWELL OF THE TOWER THEN SWINGS AWAY TO SAFETY AS THE TOWER EXPLODES BEHIND HIM, MUCH LIKE TARZAN."

No, that's not fun. In your posts you may conclude the previous event then set up the next event. Supposing the story was as outlined above, we could have:

1st poster: ...and lets out a roar as he bounds toward his faithful steed as a guitar melody concludes. In the blackness of night our hero rides hard toward the fortress looming in the horizon to the blast beats of a double kick drum during the break down...

2nd poster: ...and leaps from the back of his horse with the grace of a gazelle into the castle courtyard as the rhythm guitar begins a riff. The hero finds himself surround by 50 armored guards as the first notes of the lead guitar squeal over the riff...

then so on and so forth.

Obviously it doesn't have to be a cinematic style movie and can be absolutely as random as you care to make it. You can highlight what the music is doing in the background too as above if you like or simply develop what's going on on screen. You may not post again until 2 people have posted since your last post. If you use firefox, keep 2 tabs open or if you use IE use 2 windows. Before submitting your post, verify nobody has beaten you to the punch in one window then hit post in the other window. The video will be done in 24 hours and summarized. BOLD your post at what's happening with the video so it's easy to distinguish what's happening from aside comments.

EDIT: If you're beaten to the punch, you must edit your post, if you cannot edit it to make it work before someone replies to the first responder, then you must edit your post to blank, REMEMBER TO BOLD!

Alright gang, put on your creative hats, it can be as hilarious or artful as you care to make, so without further ado, clock starts now:

The lights are down as the hi hat counts in the song as the lights come up the outline of...

Rolling w/ Munta since he beat you to the punch:

...the lead guitar opens up with a slow melody as the evil eyes are replaced by the image of the band in the background, with a flash of lightning the screen changes to...
