I really like this vid. You know why? The total absence of smartphones. Look at that crowd. Look at it. Not a single person in there who’s standing perfectly still so that he can record a famous guy. I am: a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard. Said the smartphone-guy at the party. A handful of complaints. I know, right? Like, here you are, hiding yourself behind your smartphone thingy at what’s supposed to be a social event. It’s like, dude, I know you might be feeling anxious in a giant crowd right now, and perhaps not so eager to rock, but that’s kind of the point of a party. We all feel socially anxious sometimes, it’s no big deal. Just put it down. Lock it up. Let’s vote yes for “no smartphone”-parties. Let’s rock. I can’t feel. Try rockin’. You might feel something then. Yeah… Smartphones. They should ban that stuff. Or at least them social media apps. So I let go, watching you, turn your back like you always do. Finally! Some understanding on the person-with-the-dumb-phone’s part! When was this thing written? 2003? Fucking pioneers, man. Understanding today’s social problems and all that. You’re gonna listen to me, like it or not, right now. Damn those lines, did we just stumble upon a Facebook-issue? Don’t turn your back at me, I won’t be ignored. Yep. Yep, I think we did.
