I was about to say exactly the same thing before I went to the toilet and came back to find that my dad had nicked my spot at the computer. :evil:

What browser are you using?

If it's Firefox, I just had the same problem while checking to see if it was the original video, or if someone had been keen enough to repeat the exercise.

5 browser deaths in a row (with resets). Switched over to IE and it was fine.

if only he had managed to get the ticket in the gate faster at the end he may have made the doors. Makes you feel like your running with him

Do you think SPT knew anything about this?

I'd suspect not. Knowing the subway they'd have threatened to strike in a demand for some spurious fees from the filmmaker before granting permission.

According to their website, you have to pay £200 an hour(!) to film on SPT locations, and have a great deal of insurance! http://www.spt.co.uk/filming/ 8O 8O 8O
