The Power of  ‘Out There’….

Only heard about THIS VIDEO yesterday but apparently a few others already knew about it. Something like 45 million views on YouTube.  The short story is that a guy posted an animated video back in 2006, it immediately went madly and (when you see the tape you’ll know what I mean) unexplainably viral. Weirder still, the fascination with it continues. 

The guy  of course has since launched an extremely successful film and video business as a result.
