According to Mother Jones, the video, "Wealth Inequality in America," (see below), is his only politically minded video so far. "These issues are simply things I think (and perhaps angst) about in my spare time," Z wrote. "The really incredible thing for me is the simple fact that people are now talking about these issues…So it's pretty neat to open some eyes and get people thinking."
With the breathtaking success of the video--consider that more people have watched it than Oscar winner "Inside Job" and Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" put together--Politizane should be compelled to make another one. And if not he, the popularity of the piece might incite other like-minded creatives to do the same.
