1:24:03 The reveal that it was Alex’s music playing in the background all along I felt a wave of emotions, that was the best way you could’ve captured the complexity of what this video brought the message of, sometimes unheard artists or underground artists are really the best artists and they get so little recognition that it seems sort of unfair that these passionate and creative people go practically unheard. Amazing documentary I will think about this all the time

That plot twist though. Man, you should really submit this to Sundance and enter it into film festivals. The story telling as well as your dedication to the research is simply incredible. I've been a regular viewer for probably the last 4 or 5 years and it's been amazing to see how you've grown in your talents. I'm willing to wait 7 months if this is the kind of quality that you're willing to put into your documentaries and I really think that this is something you should pursue outside of TRvid (But don't forget about us of course). The pacing throughout was incredible, I was so excited when you got the final lead which led you to the conclusion we were all looking for, no other video on TRvid has made me so excited to see what happens next, and unlike a lot of other documentaries I've seen, you not only cover somewhat niche topics, but you have a great sense of dry humor and manage to tell the documentary cinematically through your point of view. I really felt the fatigue and despair which is something I don't usually feel when watching the History channel. You're style is something I can't say I've typically seen before in the world of either TRvid or most documentaries, and It's something I really admire about you and your art. As someone who has gotten their degree in film and is pursuing an MFA in this field, I really think you have got what it takes to be a true artist, and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

When it was said that Alex could write notes from the name of a company like "Encore" it dawned on me that could be what the 4 notes are. Dis-Ney-Chan-Nel It's so simple and encapsulates everything Disney Channel was: fun, upbeat, a little different. Even if that isn't the case, it's still such an iconic, genius little flit of sound. Along with his other brilliant pieces you added for us. I'm glad Alex is memorialized in both it and this documentary. I may not have needed to watch something like this, I also don't need chocolate cake or a dog, but it still enriched me and provided an unknowable comfort. Thank you for this.

As an artist, the tribute to Alex brought up at the end, brought me to tears. It was the perfect send off. To realize the music throughout the entire film, was his. To realize that in the moment you said it. I couldn't think of a better way to give a tribute to a composer. It just goes to show how much heart goes into your work. This is such a master piece. I can only dream someone treats my work with this much respect when I'm gone.

Lucas

He definitely does use the editing to focus in on his point. I'm sure it wasn't actually quite as much of an ordeal as he made it out to be (hence his interview with Eric before the dead end was probably the same interview as when he tells him at the end of the video that Alex wrote the theme, Eric is wearing the same clothes and has the same amount of stubble in both of those) So I'm sure Kevin already knew it was Alex pretty early, but we still got to enjoy being taken along the ride and learning about some other info too!

"This sound has the ability to bring back anything, from the feel of carpet to the color of walls. It can return one's mind to a happy childhood, or represent a safe reprieve from a difficult one." That is legitimately one of the best lines I've ever heard. It's so touching on so many levels, and it makes us all appreciate having these tiny moments that grow more significant with age. Crazy how something as simple as a sound can make us feel so much.

Music doesn't have to be complex, elaborate, or fancy to be iconic and legendary. Alex is proof of this. 4 notes. You know what else is famous for its first 4 notes? Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. Those first two measures include four separate notes, played in a certain way, and is instantly recognizable too. As a writer and musician myself, this all give me a huge confidence boost. Alex, you're legendary, you're a genius, we love you, wherever you are right now.

You have an innate ability to pull in and captivate an audience that previously had no interest in a topic. It’s the same feeling I got when I saw “The Alpinist”, “Man on Wire”, “Dear Zachary” or any of the other truly fantastic documentary. You’re just as much a documentarian as any of those creators. Bravo! Keep up the good work.

I feel no hesitation in calling your work a public service. To release a documentary of this quality for free is an act of altruism, and in twenty years we are going to have great films that only exist because their creators saw this work in an accessible format and realized art didn't just have to be a dream for them.

This documentary is the best thing I've watched in a long time. The video production is very high quality, I feel like this should be on some kind of paid/streaming service because this deserves it. it's crazy that a question that simple can have such a hard to find answer. The research and dedication you put into this to find that really shows. When you did finally find the answer to the question, it was slightly bittersweet. Knowing the composer behind this famous, highly recognisable mnemonic, but never getting to interview them. All in all, this was an amazing rollercoaster of a journey, and I'm so glad I stuck it through to the end.

This is a documentary. Thank you for documenting the weird world of forgotten and lost media, attractions, theme parks, and even recipes over the years. You are a true historian and documentarian. I truly believe that one day you and many others who have been documenting media and it’s history as a whole will be thanked and revered for your now seemingly (hopefully less) thankless work. History is important. Recording things in a permanent space is necessary to immortalize humanity. Thank you for working so hard to preserve just a piece of our history.

What a great story! Its also funny to see how single day interviews can be edited to make things appear to be an ongoing set to fit the narrative of a company or person. Like Disney filming the wand IDs and express yourself at the same time, which you can tell from the clothes. And then Kevin doing the same thing with his interview with Eric before he hits the dead end and then going back to Eric after he finds out it is Alex and tells him later in the video, even though it's clearly the same interview (hair style, facial hair length, and clothes) I'm sure Kevin knew it was Alex much earlier than you would think, but then we would've missed out on the story and interviews with others that really were interesting in their own right. It still is funny though that Kevin and Disney likely use the same methods to craft the image! So much goes into storytelling and world building, and its nice to see a inside look at it.

This was one of the most inspiring documentaries I’ve ever watched, it was beautiful. And yes, a documentary, this is absolutely a film!! A beautiful film. It’s so amazing how just one film on this corner of the internet can affect the rest of it so much. Alex’s name will be known through generations now because of you and I think that’s wonderful. It warms my heart to see artists get the recognition they deserve and this is thanks to your hard work and amazing production. You definitely deserve recognition for that too. Astounding work my friend.

Why am I crying right now? For this man I didn't know who wrote four notes that I didn't even grow up with as I was 19 when his work premiered and not really watching Disney channel at the time. I think I have a hard time with legacy stories, and wondering how those left behind will carry on. I think what David says resonated the most with me. The idea that we don't get to choose what we're most remembered for, IF we're remembered. We don't get to choose what has meaning to someone or why. It reminds me of my writing. I struggle so hard, and I come up with an amazing sentence, maybe a paragraph. The BEST part of the book, in my eyes. The emotions I felt, the importance to the story, whatever it is, it's the best I have to offer. And yet if someone reads it, I could, and have, watched someone just skip right over that moment. Zero impact. And yet they focus on something that took no time, that I didn't even remember, but it touched something in them because of their own experiences. It connected to them in a way it hadn't to me, even as the writer, because of their own lives. That aliens, or future people, or archivists, will find even a portion of our work, examine it, and find worth in ANY of it, has to be the takeaway. That something we create can touch another person, can make them feel something, regardless of if we know about it or not, that HAS to be the reason.

@Defunctland Many many thanks Mr. Perjurer, and everyone, for the kind words! I miss my dad a lot, and it's a bummer illness forced him to retire early, but he was an awesome guy who was able to do more exciting things than I could in five lifetimes, and we had a great relationship. Kevin, I've been watching all your terrific vids since the beginning - huge fan here! Drew would have LOVED Defunctland, and would have had nothing but great respect for your incredible productions and staggering amount of effort that surely goes into each one. He did video production and editing himself back in the analog days. MAJOR kudos and thanks to you.

"I dunno, I like his stuff, but 90mins feels like a movie' Mr Perjurer and your team. There are 20,000 odd comments on this video, so it's unlikely you'll ever actually see this. My wife and I have enjoyed your content for a few years now - despite the fact that neither of us either care about Disney, or theme park rides. We are also the silent subscribers who watch but never comment - until now. If there is one overriding reason why TRvid (and being a TRvidr) is one of the most important platforms in visual creation it is this. This is the type of content that would never have been made either through outlets like PBS, BBC or Network television. This kind of devotion to what would be demographically a totally niche market is outstanding. The production, passion and performance are of a quality that pays tribute to an era I feel your enthusiasm for . You cock a snoot at people calling you a TRvidr in a derogatory sense. If I were able to create films such as these with even a fraction of the quality about my own passion of photography, then I would consider it a blessing. This is your finest work ever - even better than class action park. I thank you and your team for showing 3 million people the true beauty of what TRvid can be.

You’re correct. The simple answer is release the next documentary of this scale at a film festival. That’s the easiest way to jump from ‘TRvidr’ to Filmmaker.

Why am I getting emotional over a man I didn’t even know existed two hours before this video? The fact that everyone around him loved him and talked about his passion for music is so beautiful. His art is literally so nostalgic for so many people and he probably had no idea.

I think what got me, is the way that when everyone spoke about him, they had to softly mention that ‘he’s no longer with us’. The way that they couldn’t share their love of him without the grief of his loss seeping through the cracks… he must have been an amazing man.

I didnt realize how long this DOCUMENTARY was when i started maybe like 10 minutes in i saw, i thought to myself theres no way im sitting through the whole thing....but it was interesting and engaging, you made me sit through an hour an a half video about four notes. well thought out and presented and then the twist at the end where you were playing his music throughout. You can do with video what he did with music. this was great and well worth the watch. Thank You.

Honestly, as someone who studies archives and recording history, this is a documentary and this is archival work. This is remarkable, not only in its dedication and completeness, but in the fact that it puts a name to someone's work. We have this now. We know who composed this work, we can remember him now. Thank you for this. It's absolutely fantastic.

This legitimately brought tears to my eyes throughout, what an incredible film from an incredible artist. TRvid may be your platform, but you are undoubtedly a true filmmaker, whose content I and many have enjoyed countless hours of, and will continue to enjoy as you put it out into the world. Your passion is undeniable and comes across so strongly, and it makes your content honestly magnetic. I was hooked the whole way through. Thank you for enriching all of us with the entertainment, the knowledge of the history, and the legacy of Alexander, an unspoken artist who you’ve also left a lasting impression of.

I rarely feel compelled to comment on videos. But man, you've truly outdone yourself here. I was gripped from beginning to end. I've been subscribed to your channel since 2018, so I'm familiar with the quality of work that you and your team put into every video. And I think this honestly may be your best one yet. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge your works as legitimate documentaries is simply ignorant. Bravo.

You seriously knocked it out of the park with this one... my heart is still racing after going through so many emotions, the emotions of an adult wanting to feel like a kid again, the emotions of an artist that, frankly, struggles to do art even for fun lately, the emotions of an individual who feels rage and impotence at the fact artists whose work exists mainly on the internet, are not taken seriously enough... suffice to say you succeeded with your video's creation at making me feel those things at the exact right time. This was marvelous, and it deserved nothing less than melancholic tears and a huge applause from me to you, from artist to artist, and from documenter and filmmaker to viewer. While it's indeed a pity that Alex is no longer with us and we can't know his specific wishes, my personal opinion is that you did well in putting his name out there as the creator of this iconic jingle, he would've loved to know how many people young and old it's impacted and continues to impact. And, I have to say it, I refuse to let a company, much less the big D, take credit for an individual's work like that. I refuse to let TV companies and other media giants to continue to belittle the work of artists like you just because of the words youtube or internet. People like you have put so many faces and names to so many pieces of media already, so many hours of research, hours of waiting for your inbox to show a new email, all of them so obviously filled with passion and love for the project that shows through the end result, which sadly can't be said for every piece of art (just as you said, because this was a company thing, Alex might just have come up with this in a day and never thought more of it, which wouldn't have been the case if it had been his personal work) I don't know if I'm making too much sense... and as I said there's something very inspirational but still a little melancholic to this video, especially as an artist, but it's given me a lot of hope, a bit of reassurance that every creation matters as long as it matters to one person, even if that person is myself, because no matter how many times you say it in your mind, the mantra doesn't always work. I could've just written the first paragraph, but that's not enough for me, because I know that damn "I'm not enough, this is not enough" voice in our heads very well, so, if you read this Kevin, all I can say is, I hope you loved creating and producing this video as much as I did watching it, I hope everyone who took part in it loved it as well and I'm glad we could all remember Alex together even if most of us met him for the first time today. And of course, I hope that Alex, wherever he is, is happy with his work :')
