Casey Neistat's "What Would You Do With $25,000" Video Shows Hollywood Isn't Evil
It seems like filmmaker Casey Neistat's deal is that fancy, lucrative brands and movie studios give him big budgets to create inspirational promotional videos for them and in turn he takes the entire provided budget and spends it on stuff like traveling the world with his friends and helping out typhoon victims. Which we can totally get behind because we would probably do the same thing if given the opportunity. There's also a video of him being towed while skateboarding behind a new Mercedes-Benz CLA. So I kinda want his life to be my life and in turn he can hang out in a Brooklyn townhouse and write about feminism all day.
In his latest video, Neistat receives a call from 20th Century Fox and the people behind upcoming movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. They wrote "We want to run a campaign under the concept 'Live your dreams.' The collective theme of this initiative will be to motivate, inspire, and give people a catalyst to do something they've never done. We'd like to know if you'd be interested in creating a video about living your dreams."
Naturally, Neistat proposed that 20th Century Fox let him spend every penny of his budget helping typhoon victims in the Philippines. They said yes, and here's the video.
