Hey, have you seen this? I never have...first time. Check it out!!
Pretty cool that a 14 year old Canadian boy did this interview!
"Do Everything for Peace" John Lennon
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into
John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an
interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and
illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to
create an animated short film using the original interview recording as
the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon's boundless wit and
timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy
Award for Animated Short and won the 2009 Emmy for 'New Approaches'
(making it the first film to win an Emmy on behalf of the internet).
