Unsubscribe Confirmation Page

If you receive an email from "noreply@path.com", it likely has a line like:
If you do not wish to receive these emails, click here to unsubscribe.

If you click the "click here" link, you get the following semi clever confirmation screen:

Filled rectangle used to redact email address.

The blue and red segments are actually animated, as if they're lightcycles from a birds eye view.

Reloading the page restarts the animation.
