Little did Helene Cooper know, when she started nervously babbling on "Meet The Press" February 19, 2012, her words would end up exploding on Youtube. It all started with a Facebook comment, quoting Cooper:
“Obama thinks he could possibly beat (freudian slip), he thinks he could beat Romney - but he thinks he will crush the other two (Santorum or Gingrich).’ ~ Helene Cooper, N.Y. Times White House Correspondent on ‘Meet the Press,’ Feb. 19th, 2012”. - Matt Moody, Facebook userIt didn't take long for the comment to be seen by the right person. Producer/Director, Darin Southam, saw the comment on February 21 and it hit him like a ton of bricks. He says he, "felt impressed it needed to be seen by the world"; he found a few articles and then searched Youtube to see if the clip was already posted there – nothing. With more digging, Southam found the video clip and immediately grabbed it from the web, fearing that it might be pulled down. Southam then worked all through the night, not stopping to eat or sleep, editing the clip into a video he could post to Youtube. For over 12 twilight hours, Southam worked to mash the clip together with several others.
The result? An impressively persuasive and highly effective video:
Obama ADMITS his biggest fear - facing MITT ROMNEY (he would "Crush Santorum or Gingrich")!!
Southam has produced several commercials with companies such as InsideOut Development, Myelin Resources, and Adobe. He specializes in Youtube videos. Darin is also an accomplished Actor, having appeared in Academy-Award Nominated "127 Hours" with James Franco; as well as the "Disney Channel" with Debbie Reynolds and Lucas Grabeel; and the "Discovery Channel 'I Shouldn’t Be Alive''' series, just to name a few. In addition to his passions for Cinema, Southam maintains a blog “The Truth About Candor”, where he writes political and social insights with surprising tenacity for a 32 year-old. In his blog post entitled “Michigan Miracle For Romney” he states, “I think the American people are waking up to the reality of Obama's agenda and manipulation of perception.” Regarding the overwhelmingly positive user response to his video on Youtube, Darin says, “The American people are burdened and afflicted under the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama promised to deliver. We were not meant to be Europe – Europe isn’t working for Europe. My video is evidence that Americans are fed up with President Obama’s agenda to run this country into the ground and weaken it with endless spending and crippling apologies. We are ready for a new President in 2012 and the people of this country will be the ones to make that happen.” Southam's youtube channel is named from a phrase echoed often by the Founding Fathers during their times of difficulty seeking to establish the new nation, "God Save The USA"; his channel, "godsavetheusa2012".
