The World’s History in 2 Minutes

A high school student, Drivinman687, created this 2 minute world history video. It has already scored over 7 million views since May of last year, and there’s a good reason: it’s pure excellence!



This was Drivinman687’s  final project for his high school video productions class “Cutaway Productions.”  He clearly stated that he doesn’t own the rights to the music or the images, and he’s not trying to claim them. This was simply a fun project that required hours of freely-given time. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Music: Mind Heist (Yes. It’s from the movie “Inception”) by Zack Hemsey

Images: A couple of the space pictures, at 0:02, and 1:59 through 2:01 are made by the digital artist, Gary Tonge “antifanfan,” a buddy of mine who can be found on his youtube page and on his website.
