This Is Water by The Glossary is a fun inspirational video about our everyday lives and the misperceptions that shape our tiny worlds. In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. The resulting speech, however, didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the simplest life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most practical explanation of the real value of education.
“We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested.” -TheGlossary
