Hooligans in a rocket-speed escalator.

The true story of the worldwide spread escalatorvideo. Clickmonster without sender.
Based on a true story about the filmmaker who became worldfamous over night, without anyone knowing it.

The filmmaker could not believe his eyes. Two days after working late, covering a football derby game, he discovered the video he shot for the Swedish Television was spread worldwide, with millions of views.

The video shows a group of angry hooligans determined not to follw police order and leave an escalator, when all of a sudden, the escalator starts moving downwards with rocket speed. In a crash, all the hooligans fell down the escalator in a second.

This video amused many viewers on Swedish Television. Someone copied it from the TV-station Web and spread the video on YouTube.
It became a clickmonster! Millions of viewers have now seen the hooligans falling down the escalator. Newspapers and TV-stations worldwide picked up the video and shared the story. The headlines talked about a new method, of which the swedish police gets rid of hooligans. Speeding up escalators !

But the true story, is that the escalator started to rail because of the big weight of the hooligans. Fortunately, no one got injured in this dramatic accident. 


The video is a click monster. But, no one knew that this video was shot by a singel freelance filmmaker, working 24-7, 365 days a year. The attention and the spread of this video could have been the breakthrough for the fillmaker, but no one had any quote of the source of the video.

Now here's the BIG CHANGE, that you can contribute to!

The filmmaker decided not to chase the videoclip all around the world, claiming his right. Instead, he want to make a short film of this destiny.

This is to recoup the lost publicity and at the same time letting go of the copyrights.  People can continue to enjoy, share and spread the funny videoclip.

A win win situation and an inspiration to turn an adversity into success !
