Where to begin? First of all I have to give a hat tip to the creator, whoever he may be, as he hides behind his anonymous mask on top of his Mr. Mask.
This video is epic and not in the epic fashion of getting free crazy bread with your pizza. No this is epic on an actual epic level.
As if FREE crazy bread is not the true definition of "epic". Please!
The satire. Personally I just love satire, sarcasm, double-speak, and all sorts of other creative ways of saying the opposite of what you actually
mean and yet so clearly stating what you really mean. The satire was beautifully done. Not once did you deviate from the plan and that is the key to
pulling off great satire.
Satire, double -speak and all the other wonderful sorts of word-playing-tomfoolery is also a thing I enjoy. Its best when its misunderstood by most,
and even better when completely misunderstood by almost all. I blush at your description, and thank you kindly.
Why for the LULZ? Because that's why everyone does anything they don't have to do. Boredom, frustration that they can't find a girlfriend, mad because
they keep getting pwned playing Modern Warefare 2 on XBox Live. (It's always internet lag, never my fault I suck at the game)
OK! That's it! Where did you mods place this secret camera in my house? How do you know this much about my motives and what drives me towards them?
By the way, its not always lag, sometimes its quick-scoping, corner camping, noob-tubing modders!
But its never my lack of skill.
"*$%! That's it! I'm pissed. Let's try to hack some websites!" I have no doubt that there are a few legitimate hackers with some skill. I'm
sure that there a a handful of Neo type individuals who work as a respected programmer by day, and moonlight by night posting references on how to
hack someone's Wordpress account. I think for the most part however it's bored kids trying to piggy-back the few skilled so they feel like they're
accomplishing something other than beating the final boss in Final Fantasy XIII.
Agreed. Anyone who thinks the majority of these "ANON" front-page grabbers are actually heroes with a golden soul and a one-track-mind of saving the
world are fooling themselves.
I agree there are good folks in this circle...but that is only because they are all human, and all circles of humans have a few good apples to off set
the bad ones.
And perhaps that is the underlying message in the video. ANON does do some things but really not a lot when you look at the big picture. ANON isn't
going to make some huge difference alone. L. Ron Hubbard books are still flying off the shelves. Honestly,
South Park's video of Scientology did more damage to the
group than ANON did.
They sure did. The pointing towards Hubbard's little cult and insisting they have been erased from the face of the globe, was my way of saying- "hey
you! ANON couldn't handle a cult of personality" how the hell are they going to save your world.
They can't...they won't...in fact, the real way to save the world is save it yourself and stop waiting for a fictional hero to surface and save it for
Hacked websites are restored from backups in under 30 minutes and people go back to doing whatever it was they did before ANON attacked them and
forget about the whole event in the time it takes Pizza Hut to deliver another cheese pizza.
Bingo. Sadly, most who now stand to praise ANON as the second coming, are the very same people who will forget them after they don't live up to their
fantasies. Its what people like that do- forget the past, look hopeful towards a silly future, and then just move on when it doesn't pan out.
May I point towards all those who swore Wikileaks was the answer to the world's problems as far back as 5 months ago? And now what? Yeah...the TV
doesn't show them off no more, so most of the zealots just assume wikileaks went away.
Sure there are the hardcore supporters still at large...but those numbers are hardly the roaring hoard of wishful thinkers of last year.
Okay, now to stop looking at your video in any sort of intellectual manner. From a pure entertainment aspect... Dude! That was hilarious. I laughed
for real over this. Well done and hope to see more in the future from you.
I'll be making movies and art for the rest of my life. That is the only promise I can ever honestly make.
*One small critique. Some profanity is okay but too much and you run the risk of your video being mistaken for hip-hop. So add more Snoop Dog, or less
Snoop dog don't return my calls...he acts like he's still famous or something. Whatever!
I apologize for my vulgarity. I'm a scamp and a guttersnipe, bred in a pit of thieves and pigs. Its hard to change one's colors. If it means almost
anything at all- I swore a LOT more in the past....heck, I'm now almost a saint in comparison!
Thank you so much for the wonderful words on the vid. Its good to know that its intent did not go unnoticed by all.
Hell...its also fun knowing its intent was missed by many.
