a year ago mark milian was our summer intern

we loved him so much that we kept him on board as he finished his senior year at Maryland. this summer he is driving across country from MD to CA and documenting his journey for our travel blog

the day Michael Jackson died he just happened to be in Detroit so he went to the home of Motown, the label that discovered he and his brothers.

like any good journalist and blogger he whipped out his camera and began interviewing people.

this simple little video has so far gotten over a half million views probably because it provides a nice slice of life of how the locals mourned his death and celebrated his life.

nice work mark.
