The stampede scene in the The Lion King is one of Disney’s most dramatic sequences in any of their films. It created a sense of fear and panic at the oncoming rush rarely seen anywhere before or since. Edouard Salier’s video for Justice‘s “Civilization” is similarly excellent. In the desert lies the ruins of humanity’s monuments, seemingly thrown together by some force. As Mount Rushmore, statues of Atlas, and Stonehenge bake under the sun, a sudden rock movement sends a herd of buffalo parading through the landscape, dodging monument pieces the whole way.
