The Internet years: a retrospective documentary of our times, from the future! [VIDEO]


The Internet. Where would we be without it?

Quite possibly, we’d all be doing something highly useful with our lives rather than watching videos of budgies wearing tank tops, or, rather, waiting for the aforementioned video to load.

Without the internet there would be fewer places for celebrities to promote themselves.

I am proud to say that I had to Google ‘Kim Kardashian’ to get the spelling correct. I still don’t know who she is, other than if you type ‘Kim’ into Google, it’s the first result that comes up.

I’d like to say that I’ve got better things to do with my time that work out why apparently pointless celebrities are famous.

But, the fact is, in reality, I spent a lot of my time looking for videos to share you with you, my fellow Anthillians. And, in that pursuit, I do end up watching videos buffer.

This video is a parody documentary of what happens to the UK during the Internet years. Created by The Poke, think of it as the UK’s version of The Onion, it tackles some important issues. It also mercilessly mocks The Poke’s own tagline: Time well wasted.

At least it’s not another cat video. But, I will endeavour to find one for you next week.
