Lost Generation.

I received this from a coworker. Here is the lead in that was used to get me to watch the video:

/// SNIP ///
PAY ATTENTION! LISTEN AND READ CAREFULLY, all the way to the END.

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward.

This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward.

Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.
This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant!

Make sure you read as well as listen…forward and backward.
This is a video that 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. So simple and yet so brilliant.

Take a minute and watch it.
/// END SNIP ///

Without further ado, the video:
