Andrew B passes along something that showed up on his Facebook timeline. He says “this might be the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen,” and I don’t think he’s too far off.
DEMIC is a Facebook page with nearly 14 million followers, with the following purpose:
“The goal is to create the most entertaining content for our Facebook community. Engaging stories and tips to improve your daily life at home.”
They recently uploaded a video that is supposed to teach the following lesson:
“Half education is more dangerous than no education.”
Here’s the three minute video, which I don’t want to ruin, so check it out first:
What the actual heck? Is this really the best way they could convey the message of “half education is more dangerous than no education?” That point had to be made by having an airplane cleaner hijack a plane and then crash it, suggesting that the way you fly a plane is by just pushing three buttons, and the plane does everything else?
The video has 19 million views, over 11K shares, and about 350 comments. Oddly I can’t find any comments questioning if the people who made this video are off their rocker? Instead people are cracking jokes about how he should just reverse order push all the buttons to land the plane.
I know I’ve been inside for weeks now and am probably starting to lose my sanity (even more now than before), but does anyone else find this video odd as could be? Does depicting an airplane cleaner hijacking and then crashing a plane fit the bill for creating “entertaining content,” including “engaging stories and tips to improve your daily life at home?”
