PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A video created by a Maine filmmaker that shows him talking to a younger version of himself thanks to creative editing is making its way across the Internet.

Jeremiah McDonald of Portland put together VHS footage of himself when he was 12 years old and juxtaposed it with a video of himself as a 32-year-old actor and filmmaker, creating a conversation between the two that's both snarky and nostalgic.

Posted on YouTube on Thursday, it had received more than 1.6 million views within 24 hours.

The video shows the modern McDonald sipping booze while talking to his squirmy younger self about his cartoon drawings as a child, a Star Wars action figure, their pets, the Internet and the British science fiction TV show "Doctor Who."
