This Josh Chang letter is interesting:
"Regarding the happy video... Hello all,My name is Josh Chang and I was one of the producers and creators of the video. Thank you for your appreciation of the video. It took many hours and a lot of effort to create. The thing is, it was meant for a private audience and spreading it around is causing potential legal issues with the song copyright as well as the fact that we did not obtain releases from all the almost 900 participants who were in the video. Also, it might cause issues with our assignments here at Bethel, which would be heartbreaking. Therefore, we are requesting that you please inform everyone you notified as well as deleting all copies that you may have downloaded or been sent. Please do not post it or share it. Also, if you have, please notify those individuals to do the same. This is especially critical if you have posted it in a format that allows others to download it. Thank you so much for your support and understanding.
He wasn't a guy with a camcorder.....he is one of the producers in a production team.
There were more than 900 people involved in making this video...there is no way that the leadership was unaware of the production of the video. So...I doubt that the participans in it will be having trouble with their assignements, but who knows.........they might need some scapegoats.
Yes, it was probably made for internal use....BUT..with 900 peoble involved it is almost impossible to keep such a pruduction secret...there will be sharings.....I am sure that the production teem knew about this...they cannot be that naive.
Anyhow, the funny thing is that this video might be one of the most popular ones made by the Watchtower...even very popular among the rank and file. Maybe it will reach the 800 000 wiewers at youtube that a certain sign language video had some years ago. :)
