If you can’t stand celebrities feeding you stale drivel through soft lighting and slow motion zoom-ins, then you will love this viral video. The only reason it hasn’t been removed from YouTube at this point is probably because they didn’t catch the sarcasm and irony.
Titled “How the Media Wants You to Think,” the video’s takeaway message is to “be brave.” So far, over half a million people have viewed it.
In dramatic, breathy style, a half-dozen people speak directly into the camera about bravery and how the world needs more of it. It all really hits close to home during this epidemic of government lockdowns and media fear mongering.
Here are the top 10 quotes, but the full effect is in watching the whole video, produced by comedian J.P. Sears.
“Bravery is refusing to get together with my friends and family that I love.”
“Bravery is living in constant fear.”
“I’m brave enough to protect my family from income.”
“Instead of working, I’m brave enough to protect my family by letting them starve.”
“I’m brave enough to dismiss all ideas that the fact checkers say are false.”
“I’m brave enough to live in constant fear about what could happen to me.”
“I’m brave enough to scream at people in public who are not as scared as I am.”
“I’m brave enough to show my kids how to be obedient to all authority figures.”
“I’m brave enough to know that when my gut tells me I’m being fooled, I’m wrong.”
“I’m brave enough to get my personal worldview from the media.”
