An Open Letter To the party or parties who voted our video “Psychedelic Perpetrator” as Most Likely To Change the World:

I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and also congratulate you on your insight and prescience. Well before we began shooting the video we sat down with leaders of several world organizations and charities or figure out how “Psychedelic Perpetrator” could be a force for change. Every frame of every shot was scientifically calculated to create soothing images of world peace in the eyes (and hearts) of all those who watched it. And hidden in the dense cacophony of sound in the song itself is a stirring message from Bono about debt forgiveness for the third world. As we edited the video we kept Bono’s wraparound sunglasses and Kofi Annan’s fruity little hat next to the editing console as reminders that we can make a change with “Psychedelic Perpetrator” and that we are all one, whether we like it or not.

Peace love and justice,

Lars Nilsen
Aurora Plastics Company
