“Kony 2012” is back April 3
A follow up to popular documentary and one of the most-viewed YouTube videos of all time, “Kony 2012,” will be released tomorrow, but reactions so far have been cynical.
The nonprofit organization that created the Internet sensation “Kony 2012,” a 30-minute film used to spread awareness of a Ugandan warlord’s army of abducted children, has announced a sequel to be released April 3.
Invisible Children released the original video in early March, which spread like wildfire over the Internet. The video quickly garnered over 86 million views on YouTube, making it one of the most watched videos on the website.
The organization made the announcement on its Tumblr and provides little in the way of details. The only caption states that the sequel will include an update on Cover the Night, the April 20 campaign to post Kony paraphernalia in major cities across the world.
According The Guardian, Invisible Children promises “that its new film would give more details and context than the first.”
It remains to be seen, however, if the sequel can grab nearly as much attention as the first video.
Much of the response on Twitter surrounding the release of the sequel has been met with cynicism.
“Look! Everyone! I’m wearing my Kony 2012 hoodie to the Earth Hour candlelight vigil! Look at me! I’m so aware of things! Look!,” said @boring_as_heck in a response to the announcement that has received 19 reweets.
But despite the negative feedback that the news of the release seems to be receiving in the Twitterverse, we at the Daily Dot have a feeling that users will be back for a second round of “Kony 2012.”
