The video was inspired by a contest Bill Gates and Big History have organized over at http://bh-p.co/1Jze4sM If you make a video for the Big History contest before July 8th, you could win $5,000 and a contract to make more videos. Entry form, rules, and contest details can be found at: http://bh-p.co/1Jze4sM
