How To Be a Gentleman: Steubenville Video Explodes


It seems the Steubenville rape case has a silver lining. Samantha Stendal, a 19-year-old University of Oregon film student, made this 27-second video called “A Needed Response,” which has over 2 million views on YouTube (and counting). 

The message is about RESPECT, and it’s Ms. Stendal’s answer to the Steubenville controversy. What we love about it most is that rather than just airing her frustration, Ms. Stendal used her art to promote a positive behavior. The video’s popularity suggests that her message connected.
