The video starts off with Alfred minding his own business and then gets shocked that his “other him” appeared, this introduces the fact that something was wrong with eccentric Alfred (crazy person talking to himself wth!) He was then given a gift from himself, laughed and then quickly got angry. This creates the confusion and turmoil in him and the audience that he could just go off like a snap and that was it. Then he told himself to leave, and the scene cuts.
The Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp, 2010)
When first appearing in the film “Alice in Wonderland”, the Mad Hatter appears to be just a crazy character, but as the story unfolds, you discover his loyalty, jovial expressions, eccentricity, hot tempers and so much more layers of him. From a one-note kind of character, you see how dynamic he can be and it creates an interesting outlook in contrast from what was expected of him.
In the story, he seems to be trapped in his own mind, and delusional of the happenings. But that does not deter him, he strived on and overcame the many obstacles that are ahead of him.
This could come out wrong, but it’s his weirdness that attracted me to him, being able to do everything overboard, and totally be in his skin seems lovely. Being normal is too overrated, it’s the peculiar people who people look at, good or bad, people get attracted to you. I desire that freedom, and the burst of creativeness he embodies, and decides to choose him as the alter ego to recreate.

- 5 Public Figures (Actors / Politician / Sports Figures / Etc.)
- Steve Garrigan – Kodaline (Music Artist)
- Steven Chow (Actor)
- Jim Carrey (Actor)
- Matthew Perry (Actor)
- Hugh Laurie (Actor)
Steve Garrigan – Kodaline (Music Artist)
Steve from the music band “Kodaline” is someone who is creative, and out of the box which can be seen in his music videos. You can see what the band is trying to tell from it, like not being the chosen one for love and other matters. I love their songs.
Steven Chow (Actor)
Steven Chow is a Hong Kong actor who strikes on his funny characters, but at times show his soft side. Although being funny is his strong stride, it could be a form of defence to cover what other feelings he is hiding.
Jim Carrey (Actor)
Jim Carrey like Steven Chow is someone who is really funny, but in different context. He is also very eccentric and crazy at many of his appearance. He could also somewhat be using it to avoid showing the other side of him.
- 5 People I know or have known
- My Dad
- My brother (Allan)
- My Grand Father
The breadwinner of my family, although I don’t show much of my affection to him, I respect and adore him, he is someone who doesn’t complain when things get tough and money gets tight. His perseverance is surely commendable.
My brother (Allan)
Always creative and ready with his tools, he has a undying spirit to try things out and learn new ideas. I admire this characteristic of him and hope to cultivate it in me as well.
My best friend Elson, although a hot tempered like me, he is extremely caring and knows what he wants in life and would do whatever to achieve it. Although he might be stuck sometimes, just a slight push would send him to start again, he’s a hard worker. 🙂
