Tim Smit official website

A guy makes a video of his girlfriend, a dead bird falls out of the sky. A radio tower or something explodes, and all hell breaks out.

You might be talking about What's In The Box.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
Created quite a stir among gamers when it was released. With so many references to Valve games like Half-Life and Portal, the board were abuzz with the idea that this was all part of a viral scheme by Valve to launch a new game. But what?

Then it turned out to be nothing from Valve at all, but a very cool film from some Half-Life & Portal fans. Welcome creative gamers Tim Smit and Steven Roeters.

KILL SWITCH
REDIVIDER was renamed to the oft used title for cheap action movies, KILL SWITCH.

Audiences who saw it gave it a poor rating and they all basically said the same thing. Great visuals, really bad script.

Best of fortune on the future, Tim.

'Lost': Untangling the mystery of viral video sensation 'What's in the Box?'
Do filmmakers really need hundreds of millions of dollars and the resources of a major movie studio to make a super-cool science fiction movie? The answer is…well, yes. But maybe not for long, judging from the quality of "What's in the Box?," a viral video currently lighting up the web that many admirers suspect may have a connection to the TV series Lost. (It doesn't — but more on that in a second.)
