NEW YORK, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the Moving Picture Institute (MPI) released a YouTube video spoof of Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" that educates audiences about the benefits of digital currencies. The video is a love story, a comedy, and an entry point into the cryptocurrency world for Bitcoin novices, experts, and everyone in-between.
Starring and directed by Naomi Brockwell -- a fellow at the NY Bitcoin Center and MPI program officer -- the video aims to change the negative image of Bitcoin portrayed by the mainstream media.
"Those who are unfamiliar with Bitcoin want to see it banned, while those who understand Bitcoin support it strongly. Essentially, the more people learn about Bitcoin, the more they like it!" said Brockwell. "Film is the best way to educate Americans about this exciting innovation," she added.
This video is the first of many MPI projects devoted to rehabilitating cryptocurrencies and other new technologies in the public eye.
