Discreet lights corresponding to bass guitar. 4.
Lyrics slowing scrolling verticaly. You can see Tom Yorkes rugged appearance and the unflattering close up camera shot. 5. The whole video is a close up shot of the main artist but I dont think this is to raise the artist profile or create a kind of stardom, the constant unflattering close up shot represents the artist in a full frontal emotionless way which corresponds to the dark lyrics. I think there is a link between the lyric No surprises and the visuals. The lyric No surprises is used consistently in the song I think the links with the expression less shot of tom yorke, at 2.02 when his head is submerged in water where in effect he would be drowning his has no reaction at keeps the same expression, I think this link is that the narrative of the video is a very depressed like the artist has given up and nothing is a surprise, which is represented by using a shocking action like drowning and having no reaction.Between these two sections 1.31 and 3.12 there is litle movement Tom Yorke is almost motionless.
