Watching This Man Have a Conversation With His 12-Year-Old Self Is Hilarious and Heartwarming

In 1992, Jeremiah McDonald, a 12-year-old kid with a dog named Molly (!!) and a thing for Dr. Who, recorded himself talking to the man he would become 20 years in the future. Well, thanks to math and time, the future is now!

A precocious kid, Jeremiah grew up to be a slickly funny 32-year-old man with an appropriately deeper voice and––yes, still––a thing for Dr. Who.

Great films have an honesty and truth about themselves, whats posted above is a contrivance with out any truth. I guess I ask too much from the internet.
