The music video for “The Loot” by the Polish band Kristen is the allegory of the Internet: the band members, dressed in white camouflage and with their names on the back stylized as the logos of major websites (Facebook, YouTube and Gazeta.pl, a popular news site in Poland) stalk a man in a snowy forest. After a short chase, they catch the man and tie him up, leaving him hanging upside-down from the branch. Add the slowly unfolding, slightly mysterious and sax-driven spy-movie-theme dynamics and what you get is one of the cheapest yet the most clever music videos you might come across.
