Keep It Clean (trailer)
Were you looking for the soundtrack, Prepare To Drop or the achievement in Halo: Reach, KEEP IT CLEAN?
The trailer starts with a view of New Mombasa, with the Space Elevator in the background, and several skyscrapers in the foreground, including a building with the Traxus logo upon it, and another with the Prophet of Regret's carrier peering from behind it (the carrier is behind the two skyscrapers to the right of the AMG building).
A sudden cut shows a very large number of HEVs entering Earth's atmosphere at a very high speed. The point of view has now become that of The Superintendent, who cuts back to the skyscraper view, this time with an overlay of information similar to the Bungie.net lock page, and the term "Tanaga.0086" in the lower right side, before switching to a view of a street with several cars and a banner labeled < evacuate > with "City of New Mombasa" below in the left and in the foreground and a burning object in the background, with "Tanaga.0086" replaced by "Lumumba.0624". Switching to another view of skyscrapers, this time from a street-level point, the Superintendent tilts his view camera up some and sees many HEVs rocketing through the sky, choosing to zoom in on a particular squad that is going in a direction perpendicular to that of the primary group, while noting that they lack the proper authorization to do so.
Suddenly, a massive blue-white EMP explosion occurs as the Solemn Penance escapes into Slipspace, shaking the camera. The Superintendent cuts to another skyscraper view that is level with the buildings, watching as the explosion grows larger. As a shockwave smashes into the city, the Superintendent cuts to the HEVs, seeing many of them flying wildly off course. Another cut shows more buildings being caught in the rapidly expanding explosion, with HEVs being blown crazily through the sky. Then the explosion swallows at the camera and all goes black.
Reinitializing, the Superintendent cycles through all his expressions, followed by "Please Remain Calm" warnings being displayed in numerous languages, and then the messages:
A random series of numbers, letters and symbols scroll quickly across the back screen, until the screen displays ">Reinitialize..." The Overlay reappears on the screen, with the messages:
The Superintendent's cameras reactivate, and display the skyscrapers of before, with smoke pouring from the right hand side of the city. Another view briefly shows the former near-pristine street view before switching to the current state: in ruins. More views of skyscrapers show the damage to the city until it reaches an apparently damaged camera, which is tilted with blurred overlay.
The last view shows a lone HEV pod streaking through the sky. After hitting supersonic speed, the pod slams into the side of a building, creating incredible clouds of smoke. The Superintendent mechanically begins performing the standard procedure for identification of a typical vehicle accident, and concludes that the individual within had a 99.99% chance of fatality. At first it attempts to access NMPD databases to search the Vehicle ID only to find no match, and attempts to search the UNSC database. However, the search is terminated by an ONI program immediately through ONI.SEC.PRTCL-1A, much to the Superintendent's frustration.
Fast forwarding to 6 hours later through extended event monitoring, the city is now dark and rainy, and a lone Phantom floats through the area, searching for enemies. To the Superintendent's great surprise, he begins picking up movement from the crash site, and watches as the pod's door flies open.
The point-of-view has now become that of The Rookie, who cautiously climbs out the vehicle, armed with a new variant of the M7S Caseless Submachine Gun. As the ODST dodges the Phantom's sweep, his VISR identifies a pack of Brutes patrolling the streets, armed with Spikers, Covenant Carbines and a Fuel Rod Gun. One Brute stops to sniff the air and then, apparently as a threat to would-be attackers, barks with determined ferocity before continuing on. The Rookie stays in the shadows until their patrol leaves, and then, seeing a light reflecting off of his armor, examines a large video screen looming above the wrecked street. It is the work of The Superintendent, who is displaying the words "Keep Right" with directional arrows, and then "Proceed with Caution" as an aid to the lost soldier. Taking his advice, The Rookie charges down the streets.
A lightning flash signals a cut to the stormy sky, and the words "Halo 3 Recon" appear, followed by
