The Internet Is Safer Than We Think

This “Star Wars Call Me Maybe” video has been online for a whole month, and it has more than 6 million views, and yet somehow, the implosive black hole that we all would have assumed this video would instantly create, dragging everyone and everything into a crushing pop-culture-mash-up singularity from which no light or joy or original ideas can escape, hasn’t happened. You can watch two seconds of this terrible video, throw your computer against the wall, go eat some oatmeal for breakfast even though it’s a little bit gross in this heat but you have the oatmeal and you really need to finish the oatmeal so oatmeal it is, and nothing happens. And at this point it seems fairly safe to say that it won’t, at least not from this video. We still have to be wary of the Super Mario Bros Hunger Games Cast Of Community 8-Bit Karaoke YouTube Wedding Proposal, but for now it appears that the Internet is much more safe and secure than previously believed. Phew.
