BuzzFeed received a *completely exclusive* video from Josh Brooks who ran programming and marketing for Myspace during its mid-2000s glory days.

He said:

When a big movie studio wanted to do some ridiculous movie screening event – it was on Myspace. Town halls for politics – yup, on Myspace!

When Al Gore wanted to spread the word about Global Warming with his film – we booked 30 theaters across the U.S. and an interview with Mos Def!

Jack Johnson live show stream in Hawaii –YUP.
LCD Sound System show at the TLA in Phili for their fans only – YUP.

Lady Gaga came to the office in Bev. Hills to introduce herself…half the staff was like "who's she?"
