In an interesting experiment to see how the internet's social media outlets can connect two individuals separated by hundreds of miles, a guy named Walter May recruited his roommates to put together this YouTube love letter/song for his girlfriend.
Gizmodo has the scoop:
[The video] was posted on YouTube yesterday and has since then been tweeted about by May's friends, random strangers, and even Katy Perry.
But May's girlfriend, for whom the video was made, hasn't seen it yet.
That's because May wanted the video to reach her organically—through tweets, links passed between friends, and blog posts. He wanted to show his girl that they "can feel close without having to be close every day," and that their relationship can remain strong even though they'll be thousands of miles apart over the next two years.
Innovative and romantic -- I like it.
And if, by chance, Walter May's girlfriend reads The Blaze, I hope she enjoys it.
