Int Toy Factory - Morning
Darkness. Sliding door opens, casting bright light over a sea of children's toys. Four figures stand in the doorway - the shapes of the CAPTAIN, the ENGINEER, the PILOT and the SNIPER.
The four characters move into the Factory, pausing for a moment to take in the magnitude of the glorious treasure they have discovered. They glance briefly at each other, then lunge forward into the piles of toys.
A brief montage occurs, showing the four protagonists eagerly digging through the cuddly loot, eyeing some objects with joy and others with total confusion. The montage comes to an abrupt end with all four characters stumbling upon boxes of unopened tricycles.
During the sharp chords which occur during this part of the song, for each chord, a different character is seen pulling out their tricycle from the box.
Again, chord for chord, the ENGINEER attaches the Booster Rockets to his trike, the PILOT plants a strange looking rectangular box to the seat of his trike, the SNIPER hangs his Rubik's cube around his handlebars and the CAPTAIN tucks his drinking straw into his coat.
On the relevant beats, the characters pick up their brand new tricycles and carry them outside through the sliding door.
EXT Ruined Street - Morning - Overcast
Placing the tricycles on the ground at the top of a steep, ruined street, the four characters line themselves up and peer down the hill.
With determined poses and even more determined hand gestures, the four stare each other down for the last few moments before the inevitable kick off...
The most epic race in post-apocalyptic history begins as the CAPTAIN and his men kick off down the hill, peddling furiously and steering to avoid the pot-holes as they careen down the street towards the office building at the bottom of the road.
INT Office Building - Morning
The CAPTAIN, the PILOT and the SNIPER enter first, very close together. They steer sharply to avoid the cubicle in front of them and swerve around it and out the other side of the building... the ENGINEER is not afraid of poorly constructed cubicles, and with a boost from his 'rockets', he simply smashes straight through the flimsy wall.
EXT Bus-Stop - Morning - Overcast
The four racers plough past a thoroughly run-down old bus-stop. Only two occupants sit still awaiting the eternally late bus; a skeleton in a business suit, and a man who is quite alive, wearing a formal suit, a fedora and a white gas-mask, a pink umbrella open over his head. He watches with vague interest as the race peddles by, into the mouth of an icy cave.
The racers enter a frozen cave which stretches off in all directions. The SNIPER reaches for his sticky-dart toy pistol.
In a thoroughly underhanded move, he shoots the wheel of the PILOT's tricycle, sending him spinning off down a side-tunnel.
As the other three continue towards the other end of the Cave, the PILOT spins uncontrollably, slipping on the icy ground and rapidly approaching a rather high fall if he can't do something soon... fortunately, he pushes a button on the top of the rectangular box on his tricycle seat.
INT Lemonade Temple
The CAPTAIN, the ENGINEER and the SNIPER emerge through a pair of mouldy double doors and peddle rapidly up the central aisle during a meeting of the Cult of Lemonade, who watch in total bewilderment. A moment later, the PILOT careens from a hole in the ceiling, soaring through the air with a pair of miniature wings protruding from either side of his seat.
With the PILOT swooping down on him, the CAPTAIN scoots past the leader of the Cult of Lemonade and swipes the Holy Lemonade Can on his way through. With the entire Cult rising from their seats to chase after them, the CAPTAIN plants the drinking straw in the can and chugs down to give himself a sugary boost as the quarter leave the temple.
EXT Giant Ant Hive
The four trike-men of the Apocalypse surge past an enormous mutant ant-hill, with the PILOT finally having landed on the ground again and peddling along with the others, the Ants not really caring one way or the other.
EXT Junk Yard
Three rather repulsive looking mutants have a member of the Cult of Lemonade surrounded, with two holding his arms and the third about to shank him with a knife... but in the nick of time, the CAPTAIN and his crew race past, bowling over the mutants and leaving the cultist to make good his escape.
EXT Ruined Street
The race is neck and neck as it nears its close, the four men bunched up together as they vie for the finish line up ahead - the doors to an abandoned Fireworks Factory.
EXT Fireworks Factory
The finish line rapidly approaches as the crew put in their last effort... and the CAPTAIN crosses first! But all their Tricycles are stuck together now, and they find themselves careening into the open doors of the Fireworks Factory...
As can be expected from such a location, the finale of the film depicts fireworks exploding from every door and window of the factory, the four heroes scattering out the front-door, their tricycles clutched tightly in their arms as they dash for cover, the fire-works lighting up the sky.
