Parodying our Self-referential Obsessions

Folks at The Onion are masters of parody.  In this very funny clip they target World of Warcraft players, but they do so in a way that gets painfully close to all of us for whom the pleasures of Web 2.0 are tinged with a dash of narcissism.  It may be that charm of social media lies in watching other people watch us so that ultimately we are captivated by our own reflection.

  1. A very entertaining video… now if only they would have added annoying flies buzzing around getting on your last nerve as you try to concentrate on the monitor, scroll with your mouse and type with the other hand… I HATE FLIES!!!
