Rodney King Beating Video is a videotape filmed by George Holliday that turned what would otherwise have been a violent, but soon forgotten, encounter between Los Angeles police and Rodney King into the most widely watched and discussed incidents of its kind. The 1992 Los Angeles Riots, also known as the Rodney King Riots are mostly associated with this beating by LAPD. Before there was YouTube, before anyone had ever heard the words "Viral Video" there was Rodney King Beating Video. Rodney King would have lived and died complete unknown, were it not for the most famous home-video ever made Rodney King Beating Video. First Ever Viral Video.

George Holliday (1959-2021) inspired us on how everyday people have the power to document an historic event that might otherwise be overlooked. His famous King's Video was an early example of the citizen journalism to come. It seared into the national consciousness and still remains as one of the most widely watched of its kind.
