    In 7th grade we had to watch this crazy weird video about some kid who was above average than the rest of his class. It was set in the future, but the government had put these headbands on everyone and brainwashed them into thinking it's the 1950s because thats when "America was the happiest," and all so make sure everyone was just of average intelligence. Despite the head band, the kid was still getting A's in school and was upset that the government was doing this to him so he seeled himself in a TV vault and broadcasted a bunch of stuff over the TV to try to convince other people to take off their bands. They ended up arresting him and turned up his headband frequency or something...but that didn't help at all...

    At the end the kid is on a TV show that is hosted by Howie Mandell and he puts a bullet through his mouth...


    Does anyone even remotely know what movie this could be? :hmm:
