Hey there. Thanks for the vid, I'll post it on a blog I write about privilege. And while I'm totally with you on all points, I think your message would come across more clear, concise, and powerful without the use of sarcasm. Just something to consider. Best regards.

GioSafari is the pseudonym for NYC-based singer-songwriter, DIY musician, busker, freegan, feisty activist, performance artist, and peace activator Gio Andollo.
Shortly after graduating from UCF (Orlando) with a BA in Music, he was struck by a motor vehicle while riding his bicycle. Suffering from deep bouts of depression and existential frustration, he began busking in November 2008; thus GioSafari was born, performing as a solo artist in downtown Orlando.
In July 2009, he hosted the release of his debut EP "Life is a bike wreck (better wear your helmet)", followed up by his first DIY tour, five weeks across the US. Within days of his return to Orlando he was back on the road to make New York City his new stomping grounds. He has since booked multiple DIY tours around the US and released his sophomore album, Protest Songs (Are Dead), in August 2011.
His music is largely influenced by American folk and punk; but his tastes, writing, and performing style draw from a much deeper pool of art, music, politics, and culture. The lyrics are autobiographical, existential, spiritual. He sings for peace and justice and advocates the use of bicycle helmets.
