We all love our viral videos, flashing past our eyes when we enter our social media accounts. Like a drug many a video has left us brain dead, a soulless being drooling for more. To the hatred of my wife I have been known to be sucked in watching video after video, even until after midnight with an early start the next day. Sure I like things that make me laugh, you falling on your face is one of them. But, staged humour usually fails, especially when you can see that it has been set up. This is annoying as hell but one thing tops this, it is a pain in the ass get off my friggan social media pages you moron kind of feeling that I get when I see it, and many a times I have had to throw down my beloved phone walk outside and yell, then calmly walk back in and politely tell them they are fools.
What am I talking about? Social Media Experts I mean all those people that love to share a video on social media and give their so called expert opinion on the video or those that have a degree from facebook that automatically makes them smarter than Einstein when they comment on a post. Well in their minds anyway. The flies to the cow patties, looking to spread their stupidity with the world wide web.
Sure media companies and those looking for their thirty seconds of fame are going to do whatever it takes to get themselves known but why do we allow it?!! We seem to be breeding a sea of monkeys that have no understanding of what is real and what is not. I came across a post the other day shared by a person that calls themself a Christian, you know the thou shalt not judge kind. The video wasn’t new it was old and showed a person destroying a tv, there this sharer was in their high seat demanding the person in the video to get a life whilst this person called the one in the clip an “idiot”. The list goes on whether it is one of those mathimatical equations that are designed to set you up or any random post that fly around out there, all you need to do is look in the comments. There is bound to be one or more of these experts that have to tell the world they are wrong. It could even be forgiven if these people were doing it sarcastically but many sadly are not.
All I can hope for in this life is for Chuck Norris to stop shooting those hilarious beings that have no balance at all and to start taking aim at these wanna be geniuses.
What do you think? Are you one that falls for the fake videos? or are you like me shaking your head at how gullible some of us humans are.
Till next time keep smiling
