I think it's important to put his presentation in the context it was intended, as I'm sure that there will be Dawkins detractors here shortly to talk
about the brainwashing toward evolution and atheism.
He was giving the opening presentation at the Saatchi & Saatchi (ad agency) "New Directors Conference", which highlights innovative directors of ad,
This year's theme:
Always a Festival highlight, the Showcase presents a reel of carefully selected directors, representing the best new directing talent currently
making waves around the globe. Each year the Showcase is wrapped around a theme, which is always brought to life with an on-stage performance in the
main Cannes Grand Auditorium.
The power of the Internet on filmmaking today is evident on the reel, with Gevorg Karensky's accomplished student graduation film ‘GTA Rise' getting
over 13.5 million hits on YouTube, and interactive directing trio One Pixel Wide's innovative promo for Masters in France, matching hashtagged vine
films to song lyrics in a live feed.
He clearly was driving his point (made years ago about memes) home by ending in the typical YouTube style of auto tune and quick cut direction, which
has become popular and an easily recognizable meme among the internet generation.
But yes . . . the producer of that segment went for "trippy".
