A Video to My Future Self
This is actually pretty ingenious.
Jeremiah McDonald, who is a filmmaker, has managed to answer all of the burning questions his 12-year-old self was dying to know ... 20 years later!
Here's how he did it: He took old video of himself, he's 12 in the footage. And he edited his 32 year old self in the video answering the questions he left for himself 20 years ago... It's a pretty neat idea.
The clip entitled “A Conversation with My 12 Year Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition,” which has topped over one million YouTube views since Thursday, opens with a slate reading: “120 years ago I left a tape for myself…”
The film then cuts to McDonald in 1992, saying to the camera, “I think I’d like to talk to myself in the future, yes, that’s something that I’ll do!”
After a fast forward montage showing footage of the comic through the years, we see McDonald at 32 in his bedroom — bearded, boozing, and a bit bemused with his younger self.
Though the clip has attracted a fair share of skeptics, who believe the McDonald hired a child actor to play his younger self, his inclusion of the footage of himself through the years makes it clear it’s likely him — and he steadfastly maintains that the clip is legitimate.
IF YOU COULD DO A CLIP LIKE THAT BUT REVERSE IT AND LEAVE IT NOW AT YOUR AGE AND SEND IT BACK TO WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG, WHAT ONE THING WOULD YOU SAY?
APPLE STOCK... BUY IT!
