My first reaction to Hip Hop Doc and Dee- 1’s video “Whatever it Takes was that it is very catchy. The hip-hop rap has a very strong and clear message that grabs the youngster’s attention and holds onto it throughout the entire video. Trying to get their message out through an inspiring and trendy video is a great way to get kids to think and respond better to what they are saying. If they just stood up in front up of the class and tried to give the same message it would go in one ear and out the other for most of the students. The rap helps students relate better to the words and they are more likely to remember the meaning behind the jingle. By posting the video online the message can be spread from hundreds of people in one area to thousands of people all over the world. Overall I thought the video was great as it captures the attention of anyone who watches it.
