Review: Jeremiah McDonald makes history
Jeremiah McDonald has created a compelling video that shows him interviewing his 12-year-old self, 20 years on.
Using a clever mixture of footage that dates back to the early 90s, Jeremiah sits himself in front of the TV and argues with his own 12-year old ‘personality’. Preaching about what’s to come, McDonald also refers to Star Wars, Doctor Who and how the internet is going to change everything.
The video mocks the innocence of youth, and shows how we evolve through time. By asking and responding to questions with a 20-year gap, it’s a fascinating experience to watch such a change in someone’s own character.
