I was in a Koreatown supermarket recently and saw this little drama unfolding. I thought if I kept the edges of the tank just outside of frame, the viewer might not immediately know what they were looking at (at the end of the video I pull out and reveal all). In any case, watching these crabs parade around was mesmerizing and terrifying all at the same time. Are they just looking for space? Do they think if they keep piling up on each other they’ll create a crab Tower-Of-Babel and escape? All I know is you probably shouldn’t let your kids watch this right before bed [NOTE: Click the gadget in the bottom right corner of video for full screen and maximum effect]. The only thing I can’t shake is the feeling that this video could use a better soundtrack – perhaps some music? Wait a sec, I know exactly what this video needs…
