If you’re not one of the 36 million people who have seen the viral Look Up, take a look; you have below. The video, produced and starring a young London artist, is petando it like few others in social networks. Paradoxically, it tries to convince us that I disconnect, that away the view of mobile and we begin to live “real life”.
All my friends are identified with this short, believe that it well reflects reality. Each one that I caught sharing video accepts the premise that, although we are more connected, the smartphones we isolate, We disconnected from who they have on the side. And I say that it is already well!, not we may feel guilty whenever someone make a viral avoids this. Much that is written in verse, it is false.
Hey, this sounds viral
Here’s the short, Look Up of Gary Turk. You can also see it subtitled in Spanish through this mirror. Türk recites a poem full of striking phrases about how smartphones and social networking they have worsened our human relations. Against that background, it tells a story of two people made one for another crossing the street, who can be happy until death separates them, but never actually get to know each other because one of them is self-absorbed with your iPhone. What bad luck!
If we really believe that the use we give to smartphones and social media makes us lonely and socially awkward creatures, why don’t change you?
Anyway, no need to have lots of memory to meet you similar to other viral. Recently more than half a year, a video with the same arguments (but very different implementation) also ran like wildfire through Internet: “I Forgot My phone” of Charlene deGuzman. In it, a girl spends the entire day without your phone and fails to connect with anyone, because all are abstracted in the screen of their smartphones. Sure you saw it. And now in hindsight, do you convinced look less at the phone when you are with other people?
No? Though both videos are very effective and will let you a sour taste in the mouth for the rest of the morning, not just fulfil its role, we do not change, we do not learn the lesson. If we really believe that the use we give to smartphones and social media makes us lonely and socially awkward creatures, why don’t change you? In any case empaoramos, look: Look Up of Türk is spreading with more “viralness” that I Forgot My Phone from Charlene.
Look Up is 100% intended to be shared on social networks. The author very familiar with social media and has earned him to disseminate and monetize their work. The narration is tremendously effective and images we get excited because the director It appeals to elements that are close to us: children engrossed with an iPad, teenagers locked playing online, friends on the couch looking at each your phone.
This empathy makes that thing retuiteemos and we feel badly for the sermon we have just release. But don’t let us fall so soon in the ad hominem, are certain arguments of the video?
“Social networks make us antisocial”. MEEC!
This medium we call social, is anywhing but
«These networks that we call social, are anything less that»
We’re becoming unsocial, it no longer satisfies to engage with one another and look into someone’s eyes
“We’re becoming antisocial, already does not satisfy us relate to others and look someone in the eye.”
They seem to be phrases to 0’99, but not: is the main argument of Look Up. Social networks we isolate, make us miss opportunities to connect with the people of flesh and bone that surrounds and, ultimately, they make us antisocial. The reasoning should deflate only because it is an oxymoron, but rather than get into rhetoric come with a practical example.
WhatsApp has between 20 and 30 million users in Spain. If 60% of the people that the country is “too busy looking at the telephone” to make social life, in the streets of the bars of my city, there would be no banners against noise hanging from the balconies. Okay, a little extreme, but noisy people had been by Whatsapp, and there is always one looking on Twitter while his friends ask for another cane. Social networks make us more sociable reality. We are in constant communication with our more relatives and We have created links that didn’t exist before; with the neighbors, with the parents of the school and even within our own family.
-Primo, how are you? How to grow children, see them on Facebook
-Very well, thank you bonus. Now… and you’re made a Willy Fog!
Do you remember when, instead of sending him a message, we called the cousin from the village to have this conversation? Me neither.
We have created links that didn’t exist before; with the neighbors, with the parents of the school and even within our own family
Yes, that when the phone had no apps were not so outstanding it. But it is that not only part of our emotional relations has moved to social media, also part of our working life (we promote us – as the author of the video-, do networking and we can even monetize our work on social networks – as the author of the video). Public relations of the companies have also had to get into social networks, precisely because we spend much time there.
For this reason, as has grown the social media ecosystem, flawed applications arise: we compare with others, try to like and, in the end, what happens on the Internet It affects us emotionally. Like everything in this life!
But, and if you really are missing the opportunity of? meet our soul mate by looking at both the mobile? Also may be the opposite: couples who met online are happier and get divorced. I do not say the magazine says it TIME.
“Any past was better.” MEEC!
When I was a child I would never be home, I’d be out with my friends, on our bikes we’d roam
«Boy I would have never found at home: was always out there with my friends, turning your bike»
We’d build our own clubhouse, high up in the trees. Now the parks are so quiet, it gives me a chill
“We construct our own Club House at the top of the trees. The parks are now so calm that they give me chills»
We have no remedy, we are nostalgic. But the truth is that This part of the video is the least realistic. If your childhood was a chapter of Verano azul, you were not the majority. As many children now spend hours on YouTube, many children before saw television for hours. And those now arriving home, drop the backpack and get to play? Before failed to House: would the recreational to do more of the same.
“We lived better before” is an argument that they can refute just looking at the past, I leave three recurring situations:
- My son only pays attention to the League of Legends, and when it leaves the room gets a day in the Clash of Clans. Lady, the children of the 90s did the same thing with the Megadrive and the Gameboy with the Walkman and the recreational 80’s and 70’s… does not want you to know what they were doing in the 70’s. Start to worry when teenager and find it in your room a Friday night.
The children of the 90s did the same thing with the Megadrive and the Gameboy, the 80s with the recreational and the Walkman
- Although I am convinced him to come out with us, my friend always has an eye on the Whatsapp to write with their roll. Do not imagine the luck you have: friends of 2000 had to write SMS with an alphanumeric keyboard, imagine the time it took to return to give you attention. And that when parents got them balance, that if not made you wait in the shade of a phone booth for hours. You give a touch from time to time and you will see how stows the mobile (for a while).
- My boyfriend is to make a picture with your mobile more times that they can withstand, and over I have to wait for me to put a filter and share it. Woman, this is like when your guys returning from holiday and taught you hour and a half of footage, directly from the video camera connected to TV, with drawings of your aunt in bikini with digital zoom to the maximum. People like to bring out their best experiences. Give a nudge to your boyfriend every time let you pay attention to look at how many likes takes the photo and is now.
“The technology we idiotiza”. MEEC!
If you read a book, paint a picture or do some exercise, you’re being productive and present, not reserved or recluse. You’re being awake and attentive, and putting your time to good use.
«If you read a book, painting or some exercise you do, you’re being productive and outgoing, not quiet or solitary. You are awake and attentive, and give good use your time»
We’re a generation of idiots, smart phones and dumb people.
«We are a generation of idiots, smartphones and dumb people»
Of course, a cliche as the top of a pine tree and the loosest video argument. But you know that life is cyclical, also with technology:
- Socrates rejected writing and in fact did not write never, because he believed that her people not exercising your memory
- When Gutenberg invented the printing press, there was who feared not only by the loss of many jobs, but also because we would return BA
- When HP launched the first scientific pocket calculator, some engineering schools forbade it because they believed that students would lose notions of calculus
However, these advances they made us more productive. Today, globalization, Internet, Google, social networks… and take everything that got in your pocket, allows us to communicate and to find opportunities for growth.
It also has games and distractions; But why we would prefer to talk with strangers
It is true, what you carry in your Pocket also has games and distractions; but Why would we prefer to talk with strangers in the metro station – as suggested by the video we do – rather than take a good while to Candy Crush or talking with a follower that surely will have something more interesting to say.
Better that those of marketing of Apple, that those convince anyone explain it
If you have not convinced me that Look Up untrue, the best will be giving the turn to advertisers of Apple. Maybe the best way to fight an avoids video is, precisely, with Another avoids video.search for more at Hyperrestaurant.com
