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.
