This short YouTube video by AVbyte reminds us all of our very serious cases of social media addiction. Facebook The Musical is funny and visually enticing, but it also gets a serious message across by presenting the eerily obsessive from a third-person perspective.
The two minute song talks about the popular social media site beginning to end. The cast shows how ridiculous we seem for obsessing over it so much. Lyrics like "Gotta creep on all my friends, every day, never end," will hit your guilty conscience if you're one to spend hours on Facebook.
The climactic moment is when all members of the cast start throwing their phones out of anger and desperation. But of course, it all ends on a good note. After all, Facebook is the a way of life.
