Thank you for capturing so many unique things on video. “Citizen Generated Media” has given all of us new views of the world around us.
We understand that you have choices as you edit and upload your video. One of those choices is to add a soundtrack. This is optional, and we urge you to consider the option carefully.
You may have filmed a raging fire, a funny animal trick, shocking and brutal scenes of hand-to-hand combat, volcanoes, or any number of terrifying military machines and associated havoc. None of these things are equivalent to “music video,” and none of them are enhanced by your favorite tunes by Laibach or Metallica, clips from Tarantino films, or the totally unrelated music you enjoyed when you were 19 years old.
This is true even though every video you see on television is either backed by music or narrated by an airhead. Please trust us.
Everyone who has heard enough shitty 90s pop culture for a while.
