Monday Morning Warm-up: Tesla Motors – Hope
Have a case of the Mondays? Dreading another work week? Does life seem futile? Don’t worry, we’re here to remind you that we live in the future, where science fiction has become science fact, and the cars of our dreams . I’ve got the perfect video to kick this new series off.
Let’s get the week started with an amazing fan-made video for Tesla Motors entitled Hope. Cobbled together with footage from Wired, Aerial Mob, and Tesla itself, this fan-made commercial is an inspiring homage to Tesla’s unlikely success story. If you watch this and don’t feel inspired to greatness, you’d better check your pulse. So far, this is my favorite fan-made commercial though you should check out the other candidates for yourself.
For those still reading (why?), the abbreviated speech is pulled from the end of Charlie Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator.” It’s an incredible feat of cinema from 1940 with a universal message that still resonates today. If you’ve made it this far, and you haven’t seen this timeless classic, do yourself a favor and watch it.
After you watch this fan video, that is.
