When Jeremiah McDonald was 12 years old, he recorded a message for his future self. In the video, he fired off a list questions and twenty years later, Jeremiah (now a filmmaker) sat down to answer them.
Jeremiah turned the two videos into a clip called ‘A conversation with my 12-year-old self’ and the result – his 12-year-old self interviewing his 32-year-old self – is really quite amazing.
It’s notched up more than 4 million views since it was loaded to YouTube last week. You’ll see why.
So, if you could go back and ask your adult-self a question, what would it be?
Imagine you’re at a dinner party. Different opinions are welcome but keep it respectful or the host will show you the door. We have zero tolerance for any abuse of our writers, our editorial team or other commenters.
So if you’re rude, mean-spirited, snarky, aggressive, defamatory or bitchy, your comment will be deleted (so will any replies to the original comment – so don’t bother arguing with rude people, instead just hit the ‘alert moderator’ button).
And if you’re offensive, you’ll be blacklisted and all your comments will go directly to spam. Remember what Fonzie was like? Cool. That’s how we’re going to be – cool. Have fun and thanks for adding to the conversation.
