And Now, a Word from an OG: MadV Speaks

Believe it or not, the internet existed in 2009. We know. We were there.

So was MadV. Silent, mysterious, moving, the man in the Guy Fawkes mask made music and created community, connecting strangers across the internet and the planet through the then-new and novel medium of YouTube. His video The Message is the most responded-to video of all time. His theme was the fundamentally caring and connected nature of humanity. If we use technology to bridge the spaces between us, the hearts and minds connected are no less human.

The Message, by MadV

Connecting despite social, geographic, and cultural distancing, as you can see, is not only possible, but powerful. Let this classic of the interwebs inspire you to upload your own response.

“Chin up,” he says in the notes.

    The Banksy of YouTube returns, to offer us all motivation. Even if we’re socially distancing, we can and should stay connected to one another.
