This video was made by nbussolari as an assignment in Fall 2008 to address ideas we were debating after reading Henry Jenkins' Convergence Culture and Paul Willis's Common Culture.
"The Hills is an MTV television series that premiered on May 31, 2006. The show uses a reality television format, following the personal lives of several people living in Los Angeles, California."[cit]

I have written elsewhere that fake documentaries: are "fiction films that make use of (copy, mock, mimic, gimmick) documentary style and therefore acquire its associated content (the moral and social) and associated feelings (belief, trust, authenticity) to create a documentary experience defined by their antithesis, self-conscious distance."[cit]
