[VIDEO] Time capsule conversation: Jeremiah McDonald Talks To His 12-Year-Old Self Using a Video He Made TWENTY Years Ago
this video has began going viral, and because of that, I thought I would share it with all of you. Jeremiah McDonald is a 32-year-old man who appears to be having a conversation with himself, at the age of 12.
Jeremiah McDonald‘s endearing film shows him going 20 years back in time to speak to himself as a playful, chubby-cheeked boy.
McDonald is from Portland, Maine and is receiving not only praise for this video, but also some skepticism. Many people believe he hired someone to play his 12-year-old self, while others realize he is a filmmaker and has the ability to edit a video from 20 years ago, that he made himself, with the newer video he recently filmed. Also, he made this video and most likely watched it a few times and decided what questions he could ask and what statements he could make that would make it appear that he was having the conversation with the boy from the older video. It’s not rocket science. In fact, how do you think reality television works? They arrange the footage they’ve captured in such a way that they can tell whatever story they choose to concoct.
The outrageously talented McDonald is an associated artist with the Comédie de Caen theatre in Normandy, France.
