-Two people are stuck on a escalator in a place that seems literally empty. The man looks annoyed. He might be an office warker walking to this job. The woman claims  that she's already late, so for her this is the last straw (that's breaks the camel's back). At one point, she's about to cry and asks for a phone, screams for help. In short, the two of them look helpless, clueless, powerless even hopeless.

We can relate this situation to a fairly common one in real life: getting struck in/on an elevator. The difference is, however, that in this situation, people have a right to feel panicky/ freak over/ panic. Where as on an escalator, there is no reason at all to panic/be scared. The video points out increasing reliance of human beings on technology. If it goes missing, it is as if a crutch had been taken away, so these two people cannot ever climb/walk up the escalator, which would be the normal thing to do. We could also think that technological progress makes humans lazy or at least less to take initiatives/ think by themselves inclined to make efforts.
