Power is driven up in giant pink stretch limousines for which the whole width of the screen is not enough. It barricades itself in sumptuous palaces, surrounded by sinister henchmen … But perhaps the only reason for this is that it is ashamed it can’t sing? And: Can you fight such a power with Chubby Checker, Bob Marley and “limited animation”? You can; at least you have to try.
