A YouTube Video Worth Watching

Post by Apoptosis » Thu Dec 22, 2011 1:23 pm



Pretty well made video... Amazed that many on Facebook find this video offensive and racist... People need to suck it up.

Uhm, I guess I'm insensitive because I fail to see what could be construed as racist or offensive. I wonder how many old ladies would let some stange kid walk up and take groceries from them :lol:

I was sure the ending would be someone wiping out and killing themselves on the skateboard the kid inexplicably left on the sidewalk.

Karma - I don't think it means what you think it means.

EDIT: Another improved ending:



Could we re-shoot the ending so that the owner of the purse is a dude? A really hairy dude?

Thanks for posting the video, seems very timely given that it's the holiday season. I agree with vbironchef, wish everybody could do something like this all the time, not just during the holidays.

The only point in the video that could be construed as racist and/or offensive is what prompted the buying of the hotdog for the guy? Skin color? The way he was dressed? There is no clear indication depicted that the guy was too poor to afford the hotdog. His clothes were in good condition. The help everyone else received was due to an obvious indication that some form of aid would have been helpful. Unfortunately some people do not know how not to split hairs and get lost in the details. This is a good video that is akin to a forrest in the general concept it is conveying.
