Life is a Chessboard — a Season 6 promo from Spain

Proving once again that other country’s LOST promos are much cooler than our own, this promo from Spain presents the LOST characters as pieces on a chessboard, while a narrator recites this poem:

The wise man said
Life is a chessboard
of nights and days
where men are pawns of God
moved here and there
God allows them to kill
and kills
and piece by piece
he puts them back in the box
because there’s a destiny for every piece
for every player
and for God

Sl-LOST posted the video, translated the narration, and added the subtitles. Via TVOvermind.

Update 11/30/09: Post added with info about the author and source of the chessboard poem.

Update 2/20/10: The original promo has been pulled from YouTube, but there are two versions in English that are available, at least for now.

I’ve also posted a video showing how the promo was made.

  1. FYI, the line “God allows them to kill” is incorrect.

    “da jaque mate” actually means “gives checkmate”
