Dear ladies and gents,
have you seen the video of U2 busking in the New York subway?
I’ve embedded the video for you below.
Have you noticed anything? Anything that all?
Like the fact almost every single person on that platform is watching Ufreaking2 sing live through their mobile phone?
U2 are one of the biggest bands on the planet. We can argue and disagree on many things. That they might be past it, their new stuff is not as great as their old stuff, Bono might have some w*nker-ish tendencies, whatever. But they are one of the biggest bands on the planet. Still.
I have a Facebook account. And a Twitter account. And I get the impulse to plaster a picture with Bono all over your social media, because that one “friend” you can’t stand might see it.* Bishes please! I’m not above it, is all I’m saying.
But take one picture and then put away your damn phone. Enjoy Ufreaking2 perform for you for free. Like Bono is RIGHT THERE mere meters away from you. Look at with your own eyes. And not through a freaking phone.
I have concluded two things.
a) I’m obviously old cos stuff like this annoys me.
b) We have collectively turned into a bunch of a**holes.
*On a side note – we all might do well to remember not to match our insides with everybody else’s outsides.
