Huliganov’s “End of the World”

Production date: 15 June 2006
Playout date: 16/6/2006
Camera: Logitech webcam
Post Production: Windows Movie Maker
Location: ul Kopernika, Katowice, in my then office.

In this video, Huliganov discusses the literary device known as the “pathetic fallacy” and illustrates it with a 50’s song by the poet Skeeter Davis, “The End of the World”.

This was a piece I did impromptu, as I had half an hour before a meeting and the idea had presented itself on the drive down to Katowice. Here we see the early Huliganov crystallising into the character we see in later videos.

This still has a medium degree of popularity, and even the same day as I upload this there is a video response by Atticus Stount.  I also used stills from this video for a couple of channel icons that are going around, which you may have spotted.

For example, this one:Straight from this video
