The truth about our increasingly anti-social generation of youths
12 February 2018 | by UrAverageMovieCriticSee all my reviews

This mere 3 minute short film pretty much sums up everything about what's wrong with today's "selfie generation", and it does so very effectively. Remember the old aphorism that "a picture is worth a thousand words"? Well apparently that's not the case anymore in this day and age. Youths are so consumed by the online world of social media that they literally don't care about the real world anymore. As you can tell from this short, the two adolescent girls have zero intentions on socializing with a real life person and only care about how much "likes" they get on their posts. It really shows how social media has turned us from normal sociable human beings into self-absorbed narcissistic individuals that get their positive reinforcements from a virtual world instead of their real one. There's even a phobia now (called nomophobia) for people who get anxious when they aren't able to check social media on their phones.

So for the highly effective message this puts out in only 3 minutes, I give it a 10.

Have a child that is addicted to posting selfies on social media? Show them this short quick video and they'll finally see how silly this generation is.

P.S. Don't even bother reading the other "review" on here. It completely negated the entire purpose of this short and instead focused on something so trivial like the actor.
