Danish electronic master Anders Trentemøller takes himself out of the driver's seat in the new video for his Lost's "Gravity," choosing instead to put the focus on a man (Oscar Isaac) learning about life via the carpool lane.
An origin story, of sorts--LIGHTNINGFACE stars Oscar Isaac as Basil Stitt, who in the aftermath of an inexplicable incident, decides to sequester himself inside his apartment, setting the stage for a profound transformation.
Mr. Carpool (Oscar Isaac) wanders around the freeways of Los Angeles, making ends meet by offering his services as an extra passenger so they can drive in the carpooling lane. Throughout his adventures, he meets a series of oddballs, from a protein shake-pounding muscleman (Firas Al Khazaali), to high-strung business types (Charley Rossman), to a multi-tasking muncher (Michael Q. Schmidt) who drives with his hands on a burger instead of the steering wheel. While he witnesses some nervous breakdowns, high points in his day include smoking up with a relaxed truck driver (Max Minghella), getting to man the wheel while a lady gets changed for work (Kristina Korsholm), and forging a serious bond with one of his clients. This is all accompanied by Trentemøller's "Gravity," which serves to support the life-lesson with its steady pace and unobtrusive vocals.Written by

This video is an homage to the great city of LA, a place where diversity is an understatement: a place full of vibrant characters from all walks of life; a place where even our Mr. Carpool can gravitate into his American dream.
