Hello. My name is Brian David Gilbert, and I am applying to become [music plays, starts rapping]
a Polygon.com video producer I think I’d be an asset to the team, don’t you sir? I like making videos, I like to think and I like to fight baddies with my best pal Link I used to live in Baltimore but now I’m in New York 'cause there wasn't much in Baltimore for odd video work so I moved myself to Brooklyn with a bag and a suit and I got a countdown timer til I’m destitute [music stops, omnious ticking replaces it] [music resumes] When my twin and I make videos, here's the basic jist I would edit in Premiere and he would not exist. Bet you didn't see that coming, I’m a movie magic pro so expect the unexpected and welcome to the show! Efficient in Adobe Suite, but improv's where I shine and I've got a modest following for videos online I’ve gone viral a few times, but they're not good and I also went to Hopkins [music stops, he speaks]
but that's neither here nor there because I studied writing seminars and cognitive science? and I… er… I don’t think I'll – I guess I could use the writing for-for th… I’m saying I went to college. [music resumes, rapping resumes]
My love of gaming seems to not be in what I create but I grew up on everything Nintendo; it was great I love Samus, I love Fox McCloud and I love Waluigi Toad and Tingle, Olimar, and also Waluigi again (wehhh!) The fact is: I love Polygon and all the strange and magic videos you put on. You push the envelope with things unique and new, and that's why weird creators gravitate to you. Though the videos you make seem like they might not amount to much your videos have helped me way more times than I can count, and such a harmless source of joy is something I want to contribute to and if you give me such a chance, I promise I will follow through and help create something good, a series like these things that help an anxious guy like me feel at ease. You built a great community I'd love to do the same and together we can make much more than a video about a game.
