“I Refuse to Believe I am Part of a Lost Generation”

Here is a video, Lost Generation, that won the AARP “U at 50” You Tube contest.  According to the AARP website, the contest, launched in August 2007 was designed to give:

… people between the ages of 18 and 30 the chance to submit short videos on the subject of what they expect their lives to be like at age 50. The goal of the U@50 Challenge was to encourage intergenerational dialogue enabling young people to speak their minds and give AARP insight into their views.

20 year-old Jonathan Reed of Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia won second place for this entry, which is based on an award-winning Argentinian political advertisement. This video is only 1 minute and 44 seconds long – don’t stop halfway through! Thanks, Todd, for bringing it to my attention.
