Stromae’s Decent Into Twitter Madness

This must have been the scariest animated video I’ve seen all year. It so clearly shows the lunacy of digitally documenting your life on Twitter, brought to you by Stromae (Lebanese club goers will know this band for their 2010 hit “Alors On Danse“).

^^^Give the video a few seconds to load

“In 1875 Georges Bizet compared love to a rebellious bird.” Stromae told BuzzFeed Music in an email. “140 years later (and in 140 characters-messages) love is a blue bird.”

It dramatically reflects our detachment from the real world, and how we invest our time in our phones with our heads bent. I think this video frightens me because it triggers feelings of guilt within me!
