"Deep" is a promotional single from Nine Inch Nails' for the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider soundtrack. Because this is a promo only single, it has never been featured with its own official halo and the song "Deep" has never been released on any Nine Inch Nails album, or on any halo-numbered release, although it has its own video directed by Enda McCallion.

Promo video[edit]

The head-on collision in the "Deep" music video.

Despite its only release on the soundtrack for Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, the "Deep" video clip is completely unrelated to the movie. The video features Reznor as a bank robber who, together with a girl, steals two boxes from the national mint. They believe these boxes contain cash but instead contain a highly toxic dye, which sprays all over them when they (separately) attempt to open the boxes. Rushing to warn each other, their cars collide head on. The narrative occurs in reverse order during the clip, with the car accident at the beginning and the decision by the thieves to retrieve the boxes (to "make a withdrawal") at the end.

Reznor has made it clear in numerous interviews that he was disappointed by how the video turned out.[1]
