An American man works at his cubical in a seemingly abandoned office building. He only takes notice when the phone rings and no one picks it up. After work he stops by a gas station, but there is no attendant to fill him up. Irritated, he goes into the store but finds it deserted as well, with a TV broadcasting the words "THE END". Later he walks down an abandoned supermarket, carrying his shopping which contains a bucket of paint. The bucket slips out of his fingers and splashes paint over the floor.
