This video has been in discussion for months and months, and I gotta give props to SlatersGarage and Iggy35 for continuing to provide pieces for it, as I stalled on it. CharlesTrippy, FallofAutumnDistro and Edbassmaster all turned around their parts with about 24-hours notice or less!
The idea hit me earlier this year, and it was going to be a fake news report about violence, where you’re supposed to believe it’s condemning violence. But then the clips get stranger and stranger. Then it seemed like the 1940-style public service announcements (PSA) made more sense, and the campy music makes a nice contrast to the simulated violence… Frogger getting run over, Mario’s head falling off, Dora the Explorer shouting “sniper says no sniping.”
Credit to my nephew who helped develop the concept and even provided some gurgling sound effects for it.
Seems to have been worth the effort given early response. I haven’t had too many of my videos shoot to the top-20 best rated videos within hours. THANKS co-collaborators!
