Remember when people made content back in the day (by back in the day we mean a year ago…it’s a fast moving industry we work in, kids) and you just didn’t know if it was real or if it was fake?
Were we the only people who thought, “aww, parents don’t let their kids talk about coke these days,” when we saw that Scarface video?
Apparently not. Mashable reported earlier today that that “Scarface School Play” where those CrrRrrAaaAzYY kids were re-enacting the “probably not okay for kids that young to watch” movie was, in fact, not a real children’s school play. It was the work of Marc Klasfeld and was put out into the big bad internet machine via the folks over at Sharethrough.
Honestly? It was a brilliant video.
It just proves again the evolution of online video that is happening every 13 seconds these days. The “is it real or is it fake” video has evolved to the point where great directors are shooting things…and not even for brands. Simply in the name of virality. Kudos to both parties for making the video and distributing it to everyone who uses ‘the internet’, just in general.
See the original video below if you hadn’t seen it yet. And if you hadn’t yet…what were you doing, working? What an idiot.
(we’re kidding, you’re great.)
