First World problems are just the worst man. I mean just today I wanted to watch a new Weird Al video, but first I had to watch a 15 second commercial. We’re basically living in the worst time in history.
The thing that makes First World Problems so funny is that it’s things we’ve all complained about. Absolutely ridiculous not worth even mentioning things that we as a society see as real problems. We see them as such problems we will actually complain to other people about them in hopes that they will commiserate with us. WE NEED PEOPLE TO COMMISERATE WITH US OVER LITERAL SPILLED MILK.
Weird Al does any absolutely great job capturing this in his newest video “First World Problems.”
If you’re keeping score at home this is video number six out of the eight he plans to drop this week.
EDIT: APPARENTLY POP CRUSH HAS DECIDED TO TURN THE EMBED FEATURE OFF FOR THIS VIDEO SO YOU CAN ONLY WATCH IT AT THIER SITE. THAT’S SOME LAME INTERNETING RIGHT THERE, THAT WON’T MAKE MANY FRIENDS FOR LIFE. NERDIST, YAHOO, FUNNY OR DIE ALL ALLOWED THIER WEIRD AL VIDEOS TO BE SHARED, HOW LAME POPCRUSH.
IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THE VIDEO YOU CAN HERE.
What’s really disturbing though is in how many of these lines I saw myself. The one about not being able to get wifi in the kitchen… been there, and complained about it. The one about not being able to fast forward commercials because I’m watching live TV… hi there me on Saturdays and Sundays in the fall. The one about too many groceries for my fridge… my freezer is always full, no room for popsicles.
The stuff we complain about is amazing. This is just another example of Weird Al finding a way to comment on us as a society, mock a pop group, and make us laugh at silly jokes all at one time. The man is the musical comic Mozart.
