Time to make the world a better place – listen to Kid President's Pep Talk

Posted by Rob Alderson,

This week I was lucky enough to go to The Future Laboroatory’s LSN Global Trend Briefing in London where one of the sessions focussed on the rise of the i Generation. These are the children who have grown up with technology as something constant and ubiquitous in their lives, and amid the fascinating insights and LSN ‘s love for a portmanteau (sharenting anyone?) they played this video created by Soulpancake featuring their regular character Kid President. Now I know there’s something a bit light entertainment about kids behaving in adult ways but cast aside your misgivings because this is BRILLIANT. Really nicely shot, undoubtedly uplifting and with some absolutely killer lines (“Not cool Robert Frost”) it’s no surprise this has been viewed 14 million times. Believe me this will get you pumped up and ready for the weekend and remember – “What will be your Space Jam?”
