During my typical YouTube viewing habits, I came across a video entitled ‘ILLUMICORP – Illuminati Secret Training Video Reveiled’. Naturally I started watching as I am pretty sceptical that the Illuminati exists (especially how it is envisioned by YouTube users). It became clear that it was obviously a parody of the idea, made by Manderson Film as I later discovered
Some of the comments underneath are pretty worrying, seeing as this video is an obvious parody –
At the moment I can’t seem to find much information about this project (except for a few set shots on their website) so I will have to contact them to find out more. I can’t work out whether it is an online social media experiment – either way it’s a fantastic piece of work.
