Where do we go after we die?

Robin Hanson found this gem:


It seems clever and emotionally informative to me.

I don't even see it as dystopian.  What we see here is a future where
1) immortality (through upload to a computer after your death) is available at a price
2) the price can be reduced at your option for accepting advertisements and some other limitations
3) A much more limited version is available free, but is optional: if you don't like the limitations you can reject it.

Further, the implication in this video is you get these options even if you haven't made plans ahead of time.  Your out riding your motorcycle, from the corner of your eye you see a car cutting off your right of way, and the next thing you see is the video above giving you  your options.
