Daniel likes to share his philosophies on life and movement with others. He believes Parkour is a global movement that will change the way people interact with their environment. To him all ways of being free and expressing yourself are parkour. That's why he often says things such as football is parkour.
Daniel also insists in the power of choices in one's training. He admits that falling is the result of choosing to fall. He also suggests that preparing for the future is unnecessary, and that you should enjoy every moment you have.

The video is set in a back alley and warehouse in London, United Kingdom. It begins with a goblin (played mainly by Daniel Ilabaca), who jumps out of a dumpster, and starts dancing. His dancing takes him out of the alley and up onto the nearby rooftops, then into a theatre. The goblin begins breakdancing (now played by Pockemon crew breakdancer, Lilou) on the stage. He exits, jumps onto a police car, and rides it back to the dumpster, when he jumps in moments before a man walks into the alley and dumps a bag of trash into the dumpster.
