The Mayans predicted that the Earth will experience a global cataclysm on December 21st, 2012. Do not believe NASA or those skeptics, our epic BYT End of the World event— featuring incredible appearances by RAC, Ghost Beach, Lightwaves, Brett and more–could be your last chance to party. EVER. So what are we doing to prep? (Aside from stockpiling all the Nutella for our fallout shelters, you mean?) We’re revisiting some of our favorite End of the World videos for survival Pro Tips and inspiration. And who’s more inspiring than America’s (fictional) sweetheart, President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day? Goddamn no one.
Should we find ourselves launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind, on the verge of complete global annihilation, we want no one to unite us in our common interests more than Bill Pullman. Should we find ourselves fighting for our right to live, we hope President Whitmore will be there to lead us through the darkness of the apocalypse and into the light of kicking ass and partying with Will Smith.
