(Dutch) The mobile young are ungraspable

“Internet, television, mobile phones and television..  they don’t destroy the world, they enrich it. More beautiful, warmer and more intense, especially for young people”. From the manifesto of The Music factory (TMF), an MTV-clone owned by MTV. The animation’s rhetoric keeps refering to a generation gap, talking about youth who don’t let themselves be shaped by anyone, and how TMF wants to offer them a platform. Oddly enough it’s targetted at TMF shareholders and employees.
