#Rooftopbreakup is an Internet phenomenon that is growing and evolving fast. What started simply as comedian Kyle Ayers live-tweeting a couple breaking up on the rooftop has now become a YouTube video.

Interestingly enough, the rooftop breakup video is not all that funny and instead is a little heartbreaking. Even though they say funny things the actors—the woman in particular—come off as being hurt and emotionally frustrated. The acting and production values of the video are surprisingly high quality, considering how fast it was made.

Breakups are never easy. It doesn't matter if it's a rooftop breakup, it's gonna be hard regardless of location. Having the Internet wedge its way into your life, while judging and leaving snarky comments doesn't help much either -- but, it does make for good entertainment.
