Gonna guess this is fake. Call it a hunch lol. This would be very easy for a group of people with basic film skills to make. 


I got a huge kick out of it though. Thanks for posting it, it made me laugh.

yes, it's a fake video of what someone thinks such a video would look like if the Government made one.  

I do find it funny that they call their own video "propaganda"...at least they know it when they see it, even when they are the ones putting it out.  

This is the description of the video on youtube

"What if the U.S. government released an "educational video" to teach today's Americans how to be good citizens?"

 going crazy....they lost me at that scene in which the girl,Mary, grabs a beat up chair out of a trash can to furnish her home and serves herself a bowl of dog food.

OMG.

This is a joke.


Quoting brookiecookie87:

Gammie. Sometimes you have good ideas. But sometimes you go off into extreme land where things don't make any sense.

I stopped watching when it showed people giving cigarettes to kids, and a mom giving food stamps away from drugs.

Both examples are so off the mark that it makes the video lose all credibility. The sad part is the video might have what would be otherwise good points. But goes so far off the deep end that it loses any impact it would have had.

Now the only people who will believe it, watch it and agree with it. Are the people in the deep end who already hold the most extreme examples.

This is kinda stupid. I get some of the points. The war on drugs is dumb,3rd parties should be on ballots and asking questions is important. This parody was just painful though.

It was poorly done, and most of it wasn't funny. I personally would have picked different points to do.
