“Funny” Millennials In The Workplace Parody Video Is A Meh For Me

So, I guess I’m a little late to be finding out about this video poking fun at millennials in the workplace, especially since MSN claims it’s created “an intergenerational comments war” on YouTube.

So yeah….that’s it. Are you as underwhelmed as I am by the video from Official Comedy? I didn’t actually laugh even once! It’s not that I necessarily disagree with the depiction of millennials in this video…we ARE crazily entitled and lazy (amirite, commenter on my post from last week?!). But I just don’t think this video is that funny or clever, especially towards the end. The China thing? Meh. At this point, saying that millennial people are spoiled, coddled, and lazy is about as original as saying that Kanye West has a big ego.

What do you think? Does this rehash soon-to-be-tired stereotypes or does it ring true? Honestly, my main takeaway from “Millennials in the Workplace Training Video: Landline TV” is pure shock that anyone of ANY generation would engage in a YouTube comments war over this stuff, because duh.

      I must be a unicorn because as a millennial, age 30, high school class of 2000, I was not spoiled, made to believe I was better or entitled, nor am I lazy. I work extremely hard and often feel I have to work MUCH harder than my trust-fund counterparts to rise among the ranks. I was, however, taught from a young age that the future of the world, creating peace, solving conflict, ending poverty and disease, rested in the hands of my generation. If anything, we’re just waiting for the world to let us do what we were taught and bred to do: save the world.

        Awesome summary — that’s the problem!

        “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
        — Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 – 1968),

        “There is nothing more frightening than active ignorance.”
        – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 – 1832)

        Hahahahahahaha that is a typical millennial response! I can’t wait for world peace and the end of poverty and disease. You have me glued to the enge of my seat! Hahahahaha

      If you don’t see the humor in this video, you’re obviously a millennial.

      I think videos like this are about a very small number of millennials, believe it or not some of can hold down a job and understand appropriate workplace behavior. We don’t all expect a raise for every minor accomplishment nor do we all lack the ability to deal with constructive criticism. And some of us, don’t have the luxury of being able to do an unpaid internship because we don’t have a mom or dad who can do all our financial responsibilities for us.
