The most powerful video ever posted to YouTube

I first saw this video when it was release on YouTube and immediately knew this guy had created something very special.

It wasn’t the usually mind-numbing drivel that seems to dominate the search result. It was thought provoking, challenged the norms of always being online and most importantly of all, got me to examine my own life.

No video on YouTube has ever done that to me before.

Nine years on, it has amassed 62 million views and I can only see that number continue to grow at a significant rate as new viewers come online and generate new hits.

My absolute favourite line from this poem is:-

We’re a generation of idiots, smart phones and dumb people

Look Up, written by Gary Turk

Give the video a watch and see if it strikes a similar chord with you.
