ADVENTURES IN SIMULTANEITY STUDIES-Video

This video is an example of how anything can be posted or uploaded online- we have gotten to a point in society where anything can be presented as fact. The issue now is that with a bombardment of information, how can we distinguish what is good from what is bad? Or rather who is informed and credible and who is not. A metaphor, I think about is the idea that culture (currently) has started to throw trash where they eat-- we can no longer distinguish the difference, so we eat both.

This video seems to satirize the nature of sensationalizing political events. One can tell that this individual is not even taking himself seriously, through the slight smirks. I don't evaluate this video as "actual" information. I do not take it seriously. Rather, the only productive way for me to evaluate this video is to consider it as a performance art piece.

What do you think?
