Millennials get a lot of criticism for their overt shallowness and constant need to interact, but it’s extra scathing when it’s coming from a guy in a Megatron costume.
In a great example of doing your job very well, this costumed Megatron (apparently at Universal Studios) gives a great monologue about the need to live in the moment instead of being constantly tethered to social media.
Here’s a transcript if for whatever reason you can’t watch a video:
Person holding mobile phone: Selfie!
Megatron: You will not receive a selfie so long as you stand before me with your ridiculous furred hoodie! When will you learn that your status updates mean zero-to-nothing to anyone, ever! It doesn’t matter which social network you post it on — worthless! Use your mind, create new memories, interact, don’t just add it to a library of forgotten photographs!
Person holding mobile phone: OK.
Megatron: Ugh, how disappointing your generation is.
Person holding mobile phone: Bye *laughter*
The Decepticon commander has a point. But in our defence, maybe our generation wouldn’t be this way if those damn Boomer Dinobots hadn’t burdened us with trillions of dollars in debt from their pointless Beast Wars.
