Imagine Dragons: I Bet My Life (2014) Poster

It's not his life flashing before his eyes, but a wild metaphysical adventure that takes a young man from the bottom of the lake and soaring up into the skies.

| Impressive and proving that clips still aren't a dying art
From the series "happiest accidents on the net". I was looking for something else, can't remember what it was, and the search bar had a Dane DeHaan still with this clip. I went ahead and wasn't disappointed. "Imagine Dragons: I Bet My Life" presents DeHaan going through extraordinary adventures after fighting with some guy downriver.

The clip is visually stunning with the performer of Harry Osborn and Lucien Carr (just to mention a few of his great stellar career) going from a drowning that doesn't kill him, with the river taking him to a house under water then changing it to a boat, and when the danger seems to come his way, there's the boat flying with grace. He eventually goes back to where it all started but with some change.

Imagination and creativity is the name of the game in this clip, and writer/editor/director Jonathan Desbiens has a full hand with those artifacts. The real imagery is powerful and again stunning, but the metaphor he uses bringing topics of faith, hope and courage amidst ordeals and difficult changes is the one that resonates with more impact, it's a solid ground. You go with the flow, whatever it takes you. The song lyrics reflect a little about it despite its more romantic tone. Though not much my style, gotta admit that it stays with you for a while due to its catchy chorus (the bridge sounds a lot better, IMHO).

I'm not much into going to extremes but you can definitely bet your life in this short film. The coolest thing ever these days. 9/10
