Homeless and “Under Pressure”

October 7, 2010

I find this video awfully moving–strange, even goofy, but still very moving. I think what gets me most is that we never get to hear the guy’s own voice or even see him try to talk for himself.

Though it is very much a crafted performance. As the man in the video puts it:

I don’t want there to be any doubts about my situation. I am a performer. I have a roof over my head and I have yet to start my own family. But this video isn’t about me. This is for the men, women and children on our streets who don’t have bright green puppets on their hands. The people who aren’t always as easy to see.
