We could not believe how much of you have analyzed this video in the last view days. There was a lot of praise, but also a lot of critical voices making a particular sore point.
In May of this year, we performed like this with more songs and WITHOUT a camera. We liked the massage of what we were doing so we decided to turn it into a video in order to encourage others to possibly do the same.
Before filming we asked ourselves the following question: Can we simply film a person in distress and put it up on the internet, without asking them or knowing their history? Our answer is quite clearly no, which is why we have hired an actor to take on this role.
Please look at our video statement (Statement & Hintergründe: Three German students surprise a homeless guy), where we explain our rationale in more detail. If we have hurt or disappointed anyone, we are very sorry. Of course that was not our intention.
We are very serious about our non profit organisation and we have been collecting for some weeks now.
