Comfortably Numb is a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles vid by sisabet that premiered at Vividcon 2009.

Vidder's Summary: "C'mon, it's time to go"

The vid focuses on the Terminator Cameron and her relationship with -- and the change from contrived interaction to potentially real feelings for -- the teenage savior-of-humanity (from the Terminators) John Connor.

Recs and Reactions

"Love the way the vidder puts us inside Cameron's head visually, which makes the vid as a whole so much more effective."[1]
"[...] Everything about this vid works: the song choice, the tone of the singer's voice mirroring Cameron's flat affect and striving for understanding, the tone of the music with its subliminal metallic hum, the clip choices -- and clip repetitions -- and above all the mosaic effect the vid uses to emulate the complex thought processes of the terminator mind. I watch this vid, and I become the machine. Breathtaking."[2]
