This is definitely valid. We all know Phil isn't above faking a concept for a video, thanks to - as you said - the sleepless night. I think I find it easy to believe he really did send a letter, because those websites were super popular back in the early to mid 00s. I remember sending multiple emails to my future self over the years (unfortunately most bound to email accounts don't exist anymore, oops) and most of them were just me kind of projecting what I wanted in my future more than talking about my life then. But I 100% believe that it was edited to make a smooth video recording process, I think a realistic Phil letter would have mentioned specific people and would have asked about his love life.LtrllySusan wrote: ↑Fri Jan 26, 2018 4:59 pmWell you asked for it so here goes nothing.
I know you should generally give people the benefit of the doubt, but with D&P and their history of... altering the truth (ranging from mutual friend lie to Phil's Sleepless "Night" confirmed to not be recorded at night), I am not sure if the letter is legit. I mean there is a good chance that it is, but it's also such an easy and quick thing to fake. Why would you ask your future self so many questions? Wouldn't you just write about how your live is at the moment and then reflect on that 10 years later? It just seems so convenient, exactly one page long, great segue to spon the tour.
But honestly... even if he made it up entirely, it's still a sweet video to me. The idea that Phil wanted to make a video reflecting on his different his life is now as opposed to in 2008 is just inherently something that appeals to me no matter the set up.
