Entertainment News – Sometimes you just need a laugh. This did it for me today. Leave it to the jokers at College Humor on YouTube to call out people who make a big deal about quitting Facebook.
In its latest video, the group compares such an event to leaving a party. A man enters a party and calls attention to himself with the help of a trumpet. Then he says, “Attention, attention everyone. I have an announcement to make.” Once he has all eyes and ears on him, he says, “I am leaving this party.”
He goes on to explain that he is just different from the rest of the people at the party — special, perhaps — saying, “I do not like your conversations.
The things you share are sensational at best.” He adds, “I will be a better person when I finally leave this place.” And finally, he makes his grand exit saying, “Goodbye people I kind of knew from high school.”
After he leaves, a few seconds go by, and he returns holding a baby and exclaims, “Good news everyone… ,” illustrating the people on your Facebook feed who only come around when something good happens for them, like a marriage or the birth of a new baby.
Commenters on the YouTube video love the realness of the comparison. One person wrote, “Finally! Something that visually represents how I see people who perform the ‘I’m leaving Facebook!’ spectacle.”
