Just for FUN, the "Virtual World"

By
Real Estate Agent with Resort and Second-Home Specialist REALTOR Broker #21673

This YouTube video is a parody on The Lion King's famous song "Circle of Life". I'm a few years passed the generation that lives through social media but this parody seems too close to reality to me these days.

Let me know what you think of The Virtual Life. Is this what you are living, or seeing in many lives around you now? For better or worse, technology and social media is something that defines of our culture now.

Kathleen, this video is very clever and speaks to too many of us. With their backs turned to the beauty of the "real" world, they fixate on the "virtual" world.

Hi Lottie Kendall. I was travelling out of country for 3 weeks and in airports it was rare to see people talking to each other or reading a book, common sights for me  in the past. Everyone was looking at their phone or texting. Virtual humanity has arrived!

Hi Kathleen.  I'm not sure if this is funny or sad.  It certainly is true.

Hi Gabe Sanders! I think it's a funny video but highlighting something not so good in our ever-changing culture.

Thank you, Endre Barath, Jr. I think I ran across it on YouTube. Maybe Bob Stewart will see your comment and feature it. Lots of people missed it and it is a fun, relavent spoof on our maybe-too-wired lives.
