Rejection…becoming less rejected?

I saw this video when it first came out when I was about 15. At that time I thought it was funny and obviously a little strange but didn’t think about it again. Seeing it now with the perspective of our class really made me think about the true meaning of the video.

I think that Don Hertzfeldt was giving the media, society and these “companies” a wake up call.  I titled this becoming less rejected because this video won an Oscar. It seems as though alternative media/ divergent voices are becoming more and more accepted. Things that would have been “rejected” last year, are accepted this year. I believe the media is slightly shifting more and more, depending on these divergent views.
