Neoscape, tasked with the unenviable job of making people want to go to Staten Island, came up with this promotional video for the Empire Outlets (coming in 2016) scored with typically overwrought techno music. Thumping drum beat aside, the animation is actually pretty cool, and they wring more excitement out of a giant ferris wheel than you'd imagine they'd be able to. And the mall looks like...a fancy mall. So that's nice too, we guess.
