We’ve already seen that boyfriends can be very dedicated to taking the best photo for their girlfriends’ Instagram profiles. These photos mainly cover holidays, and even more often some everyday events.
But what happens when the moment should involve only the couple, such as engagement? Does this once-in-a-lifetime event (hopefully) get buried under the search for the perfect angle, choosing the right hashtag and counting the likes? This humorous video by John Crist shows what an engagement in the era of social media looks like. Do you recognize anyone you know?
So, there’s a camera, a microphone and apparently – even the drone. There’s Instagram to upload the engagement video and yay – it got so many likes!
I find this video hilarious. It’s a perfect mockery of today’s trend of fishing for likes on Instagram. Of course, I don’t think you shouldn’t use social media or get likes. I just think there should be a limit, and that social networks can ruin the most important moments of our lives if we push it too far.
Although this video is humorous, it still opens some questions. Does it seem to you that it has become more important to publish the “I said yes!” photo than actually saying “yes?” Are people investing too much in these announcements just to get likes? Do you know anyone who did something like this (okay, maybe not exactly like this, but you get the point)? Tell us in the comments.
