Please note that this is the OLD version of the video, and isn't available for download anymore. If you downloaded "Closer to God 2" it is listed under a different video because the two are _that_ different.
WINNER FOR BEST TECHINCAL/INNOVATION/SURREAL VIDEO AT FANIMECON 2001
This is my favorite video of all time. Mine or anyone elses, period. When I first got the idea for this video I wondered whether it would work. Then I listened to the song again and realized how perfect this was. Closer is the most raw, unadulterated love song of all time, sung by a man whose mental issues are mind-boggling - which fits perfectly with Shinji. If you listen to the lyrics and think about Evangelion, you'll see how well they actually fit, so well in fact that it scares me sometimes. There's another NIN song which fits very well, but I'm not telling anyone since someday I may go back and do that video. =)
Anyways, this video has strong language and sexual themes. But it's the most emotionally powerful video I've ever made.
