A film by Chris Moukarbel and Valerie Veatch. ME @ THE ZOO tells the story of Chris Crocker, a controversial video blogger from a small town in Tennessee. Crocker was bullied out of school in the 8th grade and was, by his account, raised on the Internet. His online videos have been viewed over 270 million times to date—including the infamous 2007 YouTube declaration. “Leave Britney Alone!”. ME @ THE ZOO is an intimate look at Crocker, who is arguably the first Internet celebrity to cross over into mainstream media and is part of the first wave of young people coming into adulthood under constant self-surveillance.
