The YouTube saga of Brian Atene.

Back in 1984, a young actor named Brian Atene made an audition tape for Stanley Kubrick. A couple of months ago, that video was posted on YouTube and was an instant internet hit because it was so over-the-top. Quickly afterward came the parodies, including the original remixed with music, the original recut with Mr. Kubrick’s response, and a “followup” from 2006 that a lot of people assumed was Brian Atene. There are lots of others you can find on YouTube. Now, the real Brian Atene has uploaded his explanation and response, and is considering doing more comedy videos for the net. He has also taken the opportunity to publicize the Christopher Reeve Foundation for research into spinal cord injuries. Hit play or go to YouTube.
