Many will attest that technology has enhanced social experiences in life for the better, but this short film featuring two ill-fated lovers begs to differ. The creative short provides a side-by-side demonstration of how social interaction is stalled when technology comes into play.

When the girl is reading a book, interaction becomes easier between the two ill-fated lovers. Conversation seems to flow and the cute little dog provides a great icebreaker. However, the minute the two become immersed in their cell phones and music, interaction is stalled.

The video is an exaggeration of what can happen with technology if people allow it to completely take over their lives.
