You know you have a hit when 3 million people engage with your content in less than a week.
The words viral, explosive growth, and success are probably ringing in your ears.
That’s how it worked for this video…which given the numbers you’ve probably seen.
This is for the few who might have missed it elsewhere.
It’s worth watching.
Here’s the scoop on it:
In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College (one of the colleges I visited on my senior year college tour!). His speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death.
The Glossary made the video built around an abridged version of the original speech, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience.
Wish I had seen this a couple years ago when I was entrenched in the Teen Identity fight against over-sexualization of teen girls in high school portraits (senior portraits, pageant portraits and otherwise).
The message is not simple, as we would like it to be. The answers are complex and require courage and persistence. But his words bring hope, a new perspective, and a clear call to men … the ones we know and love, the ones who know and love us … to take a stand, speak up and fight back.
