Not long ago, I pointed ChangingAging readers to the Yes We Can Song video. I put it forward as an example of the power of ideals, of hope, clearly expressed and shared with others. The story behind that video revolved around a small group of talented people who got together and “mashed up” music, oratory by Barack Obama and images.
Well, one of the things I love about the ability of the internet to put intellectual content creation and distribution into the hands of people is that it begins to counteract the power that is currently held by the vast media conglomerates.
The Yes We Can Song video inspired a group of comedians to create the “audacity of gloom” video and here it is. If you have not seen the original video watch it first, it will make the second video even more funny.
And how about this?
