'Down to hell, video clip' by art+power

The story is near its end and the twenty four years of power that Faustus has bought with his soul have come to an end. Faustus has wasted his life seeking power and glory.

This video clip shows him trying to stop time so that he will be saved. But his magic will not help him any more, and Lucifer appears to take his soul. Faustus appeals to his demon companion Mephistophilis for help, but Mephistophilis and another demon drag Faustus off to hell. As Faustus dies, realising that his quest for power and knowledge has led to his downfall, he cries "I will burn my books!"
