    In this satirical take on a music video, a desperate search for salvation takes place as hundreds of evil spaceships are approaching earth. Finally the “Unbelievable 4” get the call. A superhero team (composed of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Donald Rumsfeld) receives the urgent message that the earth is under attack and they have five minutes to launch a rocket for a preemptive strike. Over the course of the story, the caricaturized leaders’ over-heroic personalities slowly merge with the personalities of rock stars.

    This animation unfolds via cross-cutting between the cinematic sequences and the concert performance. Sukwon Shin (Director/Animator) characterized the caricatured politicians and In Pyo Hong (Director/Lighter) used mental ray and Shake to complete the visuals.
