If you’re living in the this earth you know that capturing Pokemons with the pokemon go app is sucking out everyone’s time. People have been capturing pokemons in parks, museums, just on the street and actually everywhere…. you will not hear me complain to anything that get folks out off the couch and on to the streets (despite the occasional found body), but is capturing pokemons always a good thing?
Videographer James Riley just shared the above photo in Facebook along with the caption: “Came up to check on my second shooter and found him like this! Haha :)“.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “what the…!!!”; “This guy should be fired on the spot!!!” and other such harsh thoughts, but to my surprise the comments on the thread varied quite a bit.
While some commenter were in the “fire his ass immediately…” camp (yea, that’s a comment from the thread), some were on the gotta catch them all” camp.
Here are a few comments from the “fire his ass” camp, they were ranging
- from the mellow “I pay my shooters good to have their full attention on their job. I find this concerning.“
- through the empathetic “I’ve played it on set when I’m not needed (on unpaid gigs), but during a recording on a paid gig [it] takes (poke)balls.
- all the way to the stern “I assume he was paid to work not to play, will he discount his down time? Not to mention if someone catches him playing! Or just using his phone every other minute! In my case he would be fired after delivering the footage.“
But then some videogrphers took it lightly
- from the casual lol: “HAHAHAHA.. that’s funny!“
- through empathy: “I caught 20 Pokemon at last week’s wedding and it was one of the best weddings I have shot“
- To downright funnies like “A real videographer can catch focus and catch pokemon AT THE SAME TIME!” and “OUTRAGEOUS!!!!! Work should always be TOP priority for……OMG PIKACHU! BRB“
And some were actually supporting saying that “Everyone here should know how long weddings can be and know what its like waiting around for shit to happen”
Where do you stand on pokemon hunting during weddings?
