Music video Edit

Tori created a "Taxivision" music video contest and accepted fan submissions. On July 15, 2003 the top three were announced on[1]

The #1 entry was directed by Susan Hebert and according to a summary from, the visuals cut "between various passengers in the back seat of a cab, giving the viewer glimpses into their lives at that moment. Images range from a trio of laughing women to a pair of grouchy businessmen, to a distraught woman who eventually rips apart the roses she's carrying and storms out of the cab."[2] The video was posted on at the time, but the site no longer includes any information about the Taxivision contest and Herbet's winning video is not available on any other sites. Tori's #2 choice was the entry from Barclay Deveau, and #3 was from Lee McCaulla.
