The great divide takes us on an unwavering reverse-zoom journey through the big bang into the creation of life to a distant future all in one continuous camera move. The video has gained almost 3M views on YouTube on The Shins official channel shortly after its release and received coverage from reputable media sources such as The Rolling Stone, Animation World Network, Shots, Uproxx, and many others. There is a palpable rift in our country, our world, our reality. “How could this be real?” we ask ourselves on a daily basis. “The New Normal” is constantly redefined. “Are we living in the darkest timeline?” We wonder. “The simulation is glitching.” We muse. The great divide is happening between humans, between the planet, between the universe. Take a step back and reflect on where we came from and where we’re going.
