“Social Networks (Make Me Feel Sh*t Sometimes)” Cheekily Critiques Social Media Culture
Few statements of digital-age FOMO (fear of missing out) come as straightforwardly packaged as this video from musical cabaret duo Bourgeois & Maurice, “Social Networks (Make Me Feel Sh*t Sometimes)”. Singing from smartphones, Instagram photos, and facebook timeline photos, the duo rhythmically lays out their grievances with constantly seeing how much fun everyone but them seems to be having online. There’s no sublety here, but honestly, it’s not really necessary.
