Dad asks Facebook: Please let me see my dead son’s Look Back video

While most Facebook users have been enjoying their Look Back videos, one grieving father has pleaded with the site to allow him to see his dead son’s short-film.

John Berlin, from St Louis, Missouri, in the US, posted an emotional appeal on YouTube for access to the 62-second video that shows users their highlights of their time on the site, released to mark Facebook’s tenth birthday this week.

‘All we want to do is see his movie, that’s it, I don’t even need to get on his account, if you guys could just do it yourself, I don’t care,’ Mr Berlin, whose son Jesse died aged 21 on January 28, 2012, said in the video after claiming he had tried emailing Facebook in the past.

‘I know it’s a shot in the dark but I don’t care, I want to see my son’s video, his name is Jesse Berlin, so please help me.’

The Look Back videos have proved a popular feature since being unveiled on Wednesday. After the video was picked up by reddit users and shared hundreds of thousands of times, the message got through to Facebook, who told CBS 6 affiliate PIX11 the video would be with the Berlin family by today.

Mr Berlin responded by thanking everyone who shared his video appeal.
‘I didn’t know what to expect from this but it was worth a try,’ he said.
‘My son was 21 and died of natural causes, his autopsy came back undetermined. He is proof that there are no guarantees in life. Hug your children, kiss them.
‘Tell them you love them every single day.’
