It took some time but I finally deciphered the meaning behind the videos of rooms full of people standing stock-still while some hip hop music plays. Why my kids can be that still for their friends to film while they're supposed to be learning shit at school but bounce off the walls at home when I'm trying to get them to focus and do chores remains a mystery but whatever. Mannequin challenge, rock on.
Now though? My Facebook feed is full of videos of people, wait for it... opening boxes.
I don't get it.
They seem genuinely surprised at what is in these boxes. Look, when I get a package that I haven't been waiting for, I'm skeptical. I mentally rehash the past couple of weeks trying to remember who I pissed off. Sometimes I consider calling the bomb squad just to be safe. What I don't do is take it inside and set up a camera.
The Google search for What the fuck are these boxes everyone is opening on camera? led me nowhere. So I had to watch a few and pay attention.
I don't know how many of you might be doing and loving this box thing. Maybe a box has changed your life. Hell, maybe you're making your own boxes to send to people. Either way, I'm just going to end with a slow shake of my head, a gentle eye roll, and a whispered I don't get it.
