Was Trinity Jump-Jivin' in the Matrix?


Swing Dancing

In the late 1990's swing dancing was having quite a revival and the Gap was all over it. But what really set their Gap Khaki commercial apart had nothing to do with the dancing.

It was the first place that many of us were exposed to something the Wachowski Brothers were soon to become famous for in their 1999 film, The Matrix. They called it bullet-time.

The swing dancers mysteriously freeze in mid-air for several seconds while the camera appears to circle around them.




Wake up, Neo
Not long after, black leather-clad Trinity showed us that she knew a little something about Jump-Jivin' too.
