Psst! New Post Secret Video

Remember a few years ago when Secret antiperspirant ripped off with an ad campaign? No? Good. Hopefully the video below will continue to induce said amnesia.

Our friend Frank, who runs the always inspiring Post Secret project, just completed a new video that we think is pretty damn cool. Since Mortified and Post Secret are sorta in the same creative universes (or is that universi?), we figured you might get a kick out of it, too.

In addition to being cool, it's also a great example of the ways in which grassroots projects like ours are using technology in innovative ways to spread the good word. Which, to scrappy organizations like ours, is just as inspiring as the content itself. Enjoy.
