"The Social Media Generation"

This is an adaptation from the original comic "Marc Maron: The social media generation" by Zen Pencils.

The script used in that comic is a quote from Marc Maron's book "Attempting Normal".

This animation is also available on youtube in HD.

Wow, I was so expecting a comedy bit when I clicked on this, I'm glad that it wasn't one. I really liked it, the message was thought provoking, especially with the allusion to the heroin junkie, that was nice. But besides that, the animation was nice, not too overly complicated, but just detailed enough to really sell it. Also, the musical selection, sound effects, voice acting, etc. really blended together, I personally think that the sound sold the video for me, kinda had that horror/serious-anime feel to it, Big O came to mind for some reason. Anyways, very nice animation, keep up the good work, I'll be watching for your next video.

Sure, animation could use some work but otherwise it's nice.And yeah, I keep wondering how much has facebook, twitter or whatever scocial media you are using has become a part of or life.So much, that when I see someone with a "smart" - phone they are almost always in facebook and I also keep wondering - what the hell is so awesome about facebook?i made an account and what?you play a bunch of stupid daily games?Or you keep track of when people fart and when they eat?We can do all this stuff face-to-face.And my e-mail is full of useless stuff like "Do you know Pesho from Varna?"I've never been to varna(it's in bulgaria).How can I know this guy?and please, would someone explain me why is the "social media" so addictive?I have 4 friends(everyone else around me have at least 10) and I should feel alone?any way, you can ignore the mindless stuff al in all great movie/message.

Absolutely loved the last scene and all of the juicy symbolism. Very well done, and I agree that the baby boomers abuse FB/Twitter at least as much as Millennials.
