Lost Generation

Lost Generation is a palindrome video that reads the same backwards as forward, but has a totally different meaning. The video was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled “u @ 50” by AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.

(thank you karen)

  1. love it.
    I wonder which one came first, this one won the lion d’or at cannes a handful of years ago.

  2. The Lion came first. This is a shameless copy :)

  3. How very beautiful. For someone of the smae generation, it’s a very necessary thng to hear.

  4. interesting that you posted this on a date that is also a palindrome: 01.11.10

  5. How amazingly powerful. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  6. Beautiful, just beautiful

  7. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it 27 times, there’s “No new thing under the sun”.

  8. This was amazing! I’m excited to be a part of this generation, to see where it’ll go.

  9. This is a very inspiring video. Although the concept is not truly original, the words still ring true.

    I admire the design and thought process that went into this, it has been displayed in a very effective way. Well done.

  10. It might be a “rip off,” but I still like. It’s an interesting device to make a point, I think repeating that execution is ok if it’s appropriate. The biggest issue for an ad/ message is if the execution isn’t new anymore because then it might not grab people’s attention. A good idea is a good idea.

  11. This was fantastic. Thank you for highlighting it! Do we know who created it?

  12. If you liked that (and I do too!), you might like this film from some climate change students in Edinburgh
