[Casey Neistat – What Would You Do With $25000]
ON NOVEMBER 7, 2013 THE STRONGEST TYPHOON IN RECORDED HISTORY MADE LANDFALL IN THE PHILIPPINES
5 DAYS LATER I RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM A MOVIE STUDIO
Okay. So this is the actual correspondence. Dear Casey, 20th Century Fox is releasing a new movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. We want to run a campaign under the concept, ‘Live Your Dreams.’ The collective theme of this initiative will be to motivate, inspire and give people a catalyst to do something they’ve never done. We’d like to know if you’d be interested in creating a video about living your dreams. And this is the actual response I sent to them.
Here’s my concept: Give me the budget, I’ll go to the Philippines and spend every penny helping people in need.
20TH CENTURY FOX AND THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY AGREED TO LET ME SPEND THE ENTIRE PROMOTIONAL VIDEO BUDGET ON RELIEF FOR THE TYPHOON VICTIMS
3 DAYS LATER MY FRIEND OSCAR AND I ARRIVED IN THE PHILIPPINES
IT STARTED WITH A TWEET
THEN WE GOT AN EMAIL
A PHONE CALL

What I’d really like to do is…
Bye. Thank you for your help.
WE HEADED TO A CITY IN THE SOUTH CALLED Cebu
THIS IS WHERE WE PURCHASED THE RELIEF SUPPLIES

So we’re going to try to clean this place out. How many of these do you have?
WE WERE UNABLE TO LOCATE TRUCKS LARGE ENOUGH TO TRANSPORT OUR SUPPLIES
INSTEAD WE RENTED TWO PASSENGER BUSES
This is what The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’s promotional video budget looks like.
THE DRIVE WAS TWO AND A HALF HOURS TO THE PORT
THESE BUSES WOULD TAKE US ALL THE WAY TO TACLOBAN
WE DROVE FOUR MORE HOURS THROUGH THE DARKNESS
So we just arrived. We’re unloading the buses with the help of all these people. No idea who these people are. I guess this is the house we’re going to be staying in tonight. There’s no electricity or anything here, but they do have generators.
WE WORKED INTO THE NIGHT PACKING THE GOODS FOR DISTRIBUTION
That’s 500 bags, so we have 500 more to go.
THEN WE SLEPT FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS
I don’t – I don’t think that we bought enough food.
WE WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE OVER 10,000 MEALS
TOOLS TO 35 VILLAGES
AND BASIC MEDICINE TO LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS
Thank you 20th CENTURY FOX for letting us put some of your marketing budget to good use
