It takes a lot to get me excited these days, but here is something that did–2 new youtube videos. Please pass them around and make sure to tell the author how much you appreciated them.
On a personal note, in an email I received from the author of this piece, he said the following–
“Hello. I am a fan of the show, sir. I love it to the end and the video was inspired by it 100%. I am a HD videographer and musician from San Antonio,TX. About the video… I was wondering how to express my feelings about this issue you talk of on The Ugly Truth. I wanted to do a tribute to your show and Phil. I dunno if you read the full video description, but I in no way own any rights to the music or video. I simply spent hours and hours of my off time finding an emotional yet graphic vision of what it may have looked like that day. I ended up picking out some scenes from the rare ‘unrated directors cut’ of Pearl Harbor and clipped out anything resembling Japan. I used a Coldplay instrumental because it gives it heart.
In few words: I sat in front of my LCD with my Sony and recorded the images. I imported the video and edited it. In short… I assigned images and gave them another meaning. Hell, the media does it all the time. I am glad you like my ‘mash up’ as we say, I think it is simple and to the point. The video is to honor that gentleman Phil T. and his shipmates. God Bless.”
My prediction is that this youtube video is going to be viewed by MILLIONS.
In short, ladies and gentlemen, this is what can be done when people give a damn.
