Megatron Can't Stand Your Selfies

Megatron Can't Stand Your Selfies

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.

    Wait how is it a selfie if it's a video? Is this staged?

      Because the camera is turned back to face the operator's self. Thus, "selfie".

        I've only known still photos to be referred to as selfies.

          I've seen my daughter's friends do it all the time, they video themselves walking around, and then say 'Selfie' and snap a shot, and then go back to videoing themselves again.

            You're meant to say it when you do it? I don't get how this works...

          Yeah, don't be too shocked. Most people in the media still don't know what a 'selfie' is...

      Selfies might typically take the form of a photo but I don't see why it wouldn't count if it's video. It's dumb either way.
