During these two uprisings or as some would call them proxy wars in both Ukraine and Venezuela, one thing I noticed when these uprisings began was the fact that a certain crappy video was made for each of the places and each crappy video got over 2 million views in a short period. No there was no paid promotion, no there was nothing special on either one. We will post them for you to see for yourself, especially the Venezuelan video has no video at all, it is compiled of a few pictures from several years back with a voice over that says to share this.
Andreina Nash made the video but who is she?
The Guardian does a piece on the 21 year old girl that did the viral video of Venezuela:
The film was conceived and made by 21-year-old Andreina Nash, who was born in Valencia, Venezuela, but moved to Florida at the age of nine when her father got a job there. The six-minute sequence of stills and video of the protests is narrated in her voice – young, clear and American, but with the Spanish pronunciation of “Venezuela”. In the background, the soundtrack from Gladiator rises to a climax. “Sorry. I have broken so many rules,” she says. (She does not have permission to use the music.) “I just wanted to get something that was a good fit.” See Venezuela video here, they stopped embedding by adding an age appropraite
However, this is the only article about Andreina Nash on the net. We find it hard to believe that the following video made it viral at all without some serious backing, which backing we do not know. At the time this video was released there were already hundreds of videos with better quality that were actually videos and not still photos from 10 years prior.
Ukraine video here
In February of 2014 the same type of video went viral with Ukraine and shows to be developed by Whisper roar that is an activist foundation owned by Prince Moulay of Morrocco as stated here in the about page:
A Whisper to a Roar tells the heroic stories of courageous democracy activists in five countries around the world — Egypt, Malaysia, Ukraine, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. From student leaders to prime ministers and heads of state, these activists share their compelling personal stories of struggle, past and present, with their countries’ oppressive regimes. Shot over three years and completed in February 2012 by award-winning filmmaker, Ben Moses, the film was inspired by the work of Stanford University’s Larry Diamond, author of “The Spirit of Democracy” and Director of Stanford University’s Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. It was funded by The Moulay Hicham Foundation, whose benefactor, Prince Moulay Hicham of Morocco, is a renowned public intellectual and democracy advocate, particularly in regards to the Middle East.
The channel has 30 other video’s about activism in certain areas, however non eof which were brought viral like this one reaching over 7 million views in a short period. My question is, how much power does it take to make these still photo videos go viral. Who is behind these videos in order to do so?
The following video was exposed: “I am a Ukrainian” Propaganda Video Exposed As Kony-Style Scam
As they seize weapons, take over government buildings and fire on media outlets, the US-backed Ukrainian protesters are being afforded legitimacy with the aid of a Kony 2012-style viral video which triumphs the grass roots nature of the demonstrations yet is linked to shadowy NGOs that have been directly involved in staging phony ‘color revolutions’ in the past.
