The above video … is this the current generation?
I know … I know, it’s hard to judge a generation based on a video. But is this the sign of the times. Tell me you can’t think of at least a dozen people you know who could fit this persona in one way or another.
I certainly can.
As a fan of social media – and as somebody who uses it in the professional world – I don’t get away from it too much. I love using my Instagram, and playing around (though not as much) with Facebook and Twitter.
But my lord… this song is so true to so many things.
Wait, maybe I should phrase that right?
Like, omg! I’m totally, like, gonna take some #selfies and, like, get them out there. Like them! Like, ok… ttyl!
Something like that.
Look, the song is actually kind of funny. The lyrics make me laugh. The beat is pretty good. But the sad part of the whole thing is … well, how true it is.
Do you know, up until about a month ago, when I did a photo shoot with my nephew, I had never taken a selfie? Ever. Even my brother, who held off on getting a smartphone for a long time, can’t say that. But I hadn’t … until I took one with my nephew.
My hope this isn’t our future. But, so much of it rings true. Oh … and now you have that song in your head. You’re welcome.
