    Absolutely brillant and touching. A GREAT plan. Really shows the powerful nature of social media. The thing is spreading like wildfire, and soon Joseph Kony wil be known around the globe.

    Hate to be the that guy BUT. Just because you watched the video, doesn't mean you have done anything. You just watched a video, great. Now what? Two weeks from now, nobody will remember this. Shock value propaganda doing it's job very well indeed.

    Yeah, this is the stupidest waste of fucking time I have ever seen. This dude has been around and doing this since 2004. He's the Osama of Urguay or wherever the fuck this shitty country is.

    No i agree that just because someone watched the video it doesn't mean anything has been accomplished, BUT maybe, just maybe, this could be the first time something real can happen if all of the celebrities and policy makers they mentioned get involved. I mean yeah what a normal person like me can do is nonexistent, but maybe something will happen, who knows. I am aware of the guy now though, and i wasn't before hand, so that counts for SOMETHING.

    I'm sick of people worrying about the Tutsi's in Africa more than the people in our own damn country. People see this video and say they need to do something, but will walk past a homeless man with pockets full of change with no problem.

    Eh, most of the people who support shit overseas generally support shit in the US too. The two aren't usually mutually exclusive.

    That's because in America a lot of them are either alcoholics/druggies looking for booze/drug money or fakes that panhandle for extra cash. I'm not saying they're all like that but many of them are so it's better not to give out money at all than to give it to a possible druggie. If they really need help they should look elsewhere instead of begging for a couple bucks that won't help them at all in the long run.

    I saw a video about this 6 years ago it's old news. Seriously what are celebrities gonna do about it? No one is gonna go over there and shoot the guy themselves. Everyone is gonna make a big fuss about this wanting someone else to do something but no one will. Does he need to be stopped? Of course he does but I don't see the US doing anything to stop it.

    So they're going to graffiti for "justice" on April 20th? And this is unique how? Why not send money and buy rifles for the people who can fight this on the ground? Maybe a UN resolution will be passed and nothing will change.

    It is interesting how people seize on certain causes and ignore other ones altogether.


    Where are the people banding together to stop my ass from sweating so much when I don't wear underwear?

    The thing that bothers me is how commercialized the video is, but I guess that's how you get to people these days. It's done a pretty nice job considering it's viral.

    I've been to a rally and I donated to Invisible Children, who know's how my money was used. At least I tried doing something. It's an absolutely disgusting thing going on there, might as well try and help. If you don't do anything but watch the video, there's nothing wrong with being educated. So what if people post the shit on facebook? It's a video, how else do you think people are going to watch it? Get the fuck over it.

    What point are you trying to make in regards to how long he's been around? Jesus Christ Corey, your retarded/ignorant attempts at shock posts are getting old.

    That homeless person still lives a better life than more than half of the people in Africa.

    That's why by watching the video and actually SHARING it is by itself doing something. You watched, you became informed, he has done his job.
