First, it was a man falling in love with an operating system in Spike Jonze. And now, in a wonderful parody of that situation, a woman falls in love with DiGiorno Pizza's Twitter account.
Yeah, a woman named Beth played by Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead) falls in love with DiGiorno Pizza's Twitter account. I wrote that twice because I want you to understand the gravity of this ridiculous situation. It's absolutely banana shoes. Honestly, I think I might just walk home. I'm done with the Internet today.
What the hell? None of this makes any sense. I don't even care anymore. Sorry, goodbye. You guys can have the Internet.
Wait a second though. Even though it's only sort of funny [just face it, Paul, no matter how hard you try, you won't find anything funny about this], it also touches on an idea that's been floating around in my head. It kind of emphasizes the need young people seem to have when it comes to being in a relationship.
A lot of my peers, friends, friends of friends, etc. are all obsessed with the idea of dating. It's honestly why I stay home and write on the Internet all the fucking time because I'm tired of being asked who I'm dating. But for some reason, dating is somehow tied to my social value. If I'm single, then I'm at the bottom. If I'm in a relationship, then there's a new world of social opportunities open to me. [This might just be my problem because most of my friends are married, getting married, or in a long-term relationship, though, so take with a grain of salt].
But it seems like a lot of us (in my graduating class/age group/circle of friends) are trying so hard to date someone, we'll put ourselves in a position that isn't too favorable just because, well, everyone else was doing it. It reminds me of that one summer, the summer I started taking steroids because the girl liked a man with muscles and I really liked her. And I thought as I got older, I wouldn't have to settle for someone (or something) who isn't ideal for me.
I guess I was wrong. Maybe this video isn't so stupid after all. Maybe I just need to fall in love with a Twitter account so I can stop being such a sad single asshole.
