Video Licks: The Dystopian Future is Closer Than You Think in “Black Mirror is Here”
PROCEED WITH CAUTION! FUNNY REALITY CHECK ALERT! There’s no going back. All hope is not lost. Snap out of it! Hi kids, just wanted to let you know that BLACK MIRROR IS HERE. We know you consume the Netflix British anthology sci-fi series like obedient sentient beings, bingeing every new episode like it were the last. But what makes the series so appealing? Oh probably because most of it is already becoming true or very soon will be. “Fifteen Million Merits,” “The Entire History of You,” “Nose Dive,” “Metalhead,” “Arkangel,” all make you wanna soil yourself when you think how far technology has come that these works of fiction could and are being realized in our lifetime. AAAHHHH! Pine for Amish times with Matthew Patrick Davis! (WARNING: Some NSFW language, as if that was your biggest worry.)
This sing-a-long look into your future was directed, shot & edited by Sean Cruser. The music was written and produced by Matthew Patrick Davis with lyrics by Matthew Patrick Davis & Zach Paez.
