The Glitter Conspiracy

The Internet is a huge place. It’s one thing to watch Unsolved Mysteries on television, but it’s something entirely different to learn about a years-long mystery surrounding glitter… and at the same time, to hear about how three Internet sleuths learned more about glitter’s mysterious and varied origins.

I have to admit – I wans’t prepared to be all-in for this 27 minute long video. My attention span is horrifically short, and anything over 5 minutes is a stretch. But I got pulled in the more I watched, and it was a pretty compelling bit of video.

Who knew glitter had such a rich history, and so many varied applications? Who knew something so sparkly could be so controversial?
