If you haven’t heard the song #Selfie by The Chainsmokers I urge you to pause what you are doing and listen to the song.
You can also watch the official music video here. But be warned, the video is a little explicit even though it has a great cameo by David Hasselhoff.
I love this song for a two reasons. One, it’s so dumb its funny. Like, that fact that this is a song that is getting played on the radio as I drive to work is hilarious. I like to imagine some older lady or grandpa stumbling across this song and crying for todays youth. The second reason is that this song epitomizes todays youth so perfectly. I think that this song is the cry of a generation. I work in a high school day in and day out and I can honestly see some of the kids behaving in this way. I think I’ve ever heard kids use “lyrics” from this song in every day conversation before this song was created.
“Can you guys help me pick a filter?”
“I only got like 10 likes in the last 5 minutes do you think I should take it down?”
People getting called a “creep” because they liked a picture on Instagram.
And of course…
