The Story Behind The Zennie62 YouTube Vlog Angus Cloud Of HBO’s Euphoria On Donald Trump At Peet’s Coffee at 3258 Lakeshore Avenue in Oakland.
So, I vlogged the now famous Angus Cloud of HBO’s Euphoria at Peet’s Coffee in Oakland, on Sunday Morning, January 29th, 2017.
This video was originally called “Peet’s Coffee Oakland Lakeshore Sunday Morning” and happened because got the Super Shuttle to SFO Airport from my place near Lake Merritt, and had the idea of stopping at Peet’s to get a cup of coffee for myself, and for the driver, because he was so I nice to do so.
Giving A Vlog Shout Out And Sharing The Camera With People
While in line at the legendary coffee establishment (which has since expanded dramatically at 3258 Lakeshore Avenue), I was giving a vlog shout out for the driver (as I like to video-blog my life) and there was a, well, a random guy behind me, saying something and making gang signs (just kidding). I have a policy of always interviewing people who make it known that they want to be in my vlogs, and such was the case with this young man.
As you can see from the vlog, I made time for Angus Cloud to say what was on his mind, and he started by giving a nice greeting and saying “We’re out here in Oakland, USA. You know what it is. You feel me.” So, I asked him for his name and he said “Angus”. And then I spontaneously asked what he thought of the then current Trump Administration, and he said, now famously, “The Administration? My thoughts are FUCK DONALD TRUMP! Point blank, period.” Hopefully. He’s shouldn’t be president. That’s not right. Shows the stupidity of the country, in my opinion, and I don’t know.” And so I said, “You’re opinion’s valuable. We have to maintain democracy.” And he agreed.
I wound up getting coffee for both Angus and the Super Shuttle driver, and then went on to the SFO Airport, and to fly United Airlines to Atlanta to see my Mom. I had no idea that the man I randomly interviewed would later become a television star. But, five years later, that’s what happened.
I saw the posters for HBO’s Euphoria, but had not seen the program, all the while telling myself I need to check it out. I had not seen a single video clip from it, to even recognize Angus Cloud, so I had no idea he was in it or that he went into acting. Then, I happened to get tagged on an Instagram comment from an account called “A.Cloud.Admirer” and post that read this way:
Rare footage recently found of Angus before Euphoria! Doing an impromptu interview with Oakland news vlogger, Zennie Abraham (@zennie62 ), way back in January 2017. Probably about a year before Angus was discovered, so he would have been around 18 here. So crazy! Long hair don’t care! OMG! So cute! He does Oakland proud, I’m sure!
From what I hear, thanks to my Mom here in Georgia, Angus was discovered off the street, and he’s from Oakland, California of course. Now, I’m going to rush to watch his show. But what I want to know is what Angus thinks of the Pandemic, the current Biden Administration, and the Raiders in Las Vegas? You got to say that Angus has some of the political pundit in him. Mr. Cloud’s take on Trump is as classic as it is so very Oakland.
Note from Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area, Zennie62 YouTube, and Zennie62Media: this Oakland News Now video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
