As you enter the page here, if you have your speakers on, you’ll probably hear some vaguely foreboding music. If you don’t hear it yet, give it a second to load. This much awesome takes times.

… keep waiting. Don’t reload the page. It’ll come, eventually. OK. Reload the page. Maybe that’ll help. Or try a different browser. It’s there, though. I swear it.

Now, there is a mute button below on the poster, but nononononono, don’t touch it. Let that music wash over you. Let it seep into your blood. Don’t click away from the page, damnit! I’m trying to help you. Just listen. Feel those bass notes climb inside you. You’re feeling it now, right? It’s good stuff, huh?

Now, look out your cubicle. Here’s what I want you to do. Ask the next person who walks by to come over. Show him or her what’s on your computer. Tell him it’s this really awesome motion poster with this guy who looks like he fell asleep standing up on top of a pile of skulls. People love that sort of thing.

Now, as he bends over your shoulder to get a closer look, this is what you to do: Reach back, grab him by the neck with both hands, make a quick forward motion, and smash his head into your computer monitor, knocking him unconscious.

You hear that silence? That feels good, right? I told you it was an awesome poster!
