(Entry for the Rogue Wave Music Video Contest.)

Built on what was once the floor of an ancient ocean teeming with life, the city of Las Vegas continues to thrive even as its remaining water is thrust hundreds of feet into the air. In the dark of night, it is the epitome of incandescent beauty and structural feat. In the light of day, its luxury edifices cast shadows on the remains of abandoned motels in a feeble attempt to mask the flaws of Sin City. The immigrant incessantly taps a stack of cards soliciting prostitution on the street corner. The taxi cab advertisement offers to anyone capable of reading the ability to kill. The half-naked man dances unabashedly on the sidewalk in hopes of gaining reality television fame. (This is your chance, Kotton Kandy...)

The stars and stripes of America give us freedom, and this is where we come to use it.
