Although not even two minutes in length, the Dear Mr Obama video makes a strong impact. Open letters have been used for a long time as a form to address a VIP figure, be it celebrity or politician, but Dear Mr Obama shows how YouTube can take it to the next level.
"This simple message done by a simple American hero carries the power of real life as opposed to a Hollywood production," Right Pundit said. "It tells a real story that people admire and respect. The fact it was voted best on YouTube belies what the polls are telling us. When it comes down to it, Americans understand the difference between a real hero and a Hollywood fabrication."
