House of Cards intro, with Chicago instead of DC

February 27, 2014|By Mick Swasko, @swasko

Can this be real? 

A video posted Wednesday shows an absolutely incredible remake of the House of Cards intro, swapping the Washington DC setting for Chicago. 

It's almost spot on, with panning timelapse shots, the actual music from the show and an incredibly gritty shot of the Chicago skyline with the words "House of Cards" split by the Chicago flag.

The project looks to be a remix of footage from the Cityscape Chicago by Eric Hines, which can be found here, and Windy City Nights by Max Wilson which can be found here. 

(UPDATE: The video has been removed from both Vimeo and YouTube. Sorry, folks.)
