Institute's social media videos net more than 1M views in September

from Grassroot Institute, Oct 6, 2023

The Grassroot Institute's Instagram page earned more than 1 million views during September.

The most popular video of the month, with 327,000 views, poked fun at the proposed new Aloha Stadium and Hawaii's poor track record completing projects on time and within budget.

The video, which has more than 8,800 "likes," shows the character Jonah Jameson from the "Spiderman" movie franchise laughing at a news headline about the stadium project with a sarcastic caption above it that reads "This won't be another disaster like the rail."

Some of the more than 400 comments include

"How about giving that money to Lahaina,"

"Can we get school buses and pay drivers so our kids can get to school first?" and

"Why is the state involved with the entertainment business?"

You can watch the full video and read more comments here.
