Man Marries His Smartphone In Las Vegas - DesignTAXI.com | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

How much do you love your smartphone? Aaron Chervenak loves his enough to want to marry it—and he did, in a little chapel in Las Vegas. In a video that document the “slightly unorthodox ceremony”, Chervenak discusses the reasons why he wants to tie the knot with a piece of technology. 


According to him, “we connect with our phones on so many emotional levels—we look to it for solace, to calm us down, to put us to sleep, to ease our minds”, which to him is what a relationship is about. 


While this unconventional union is not legal, Chervenak hopes that his wedding would “act as a symbolic gesture to show how precious our smartphones are becoming in our daily lives”....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

I thought what happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas? Weird weekend fun!

this is a humorous article about a man marrying his i-phone since it is the place we go for comfort and solace and happiness. Although it is meant to be funny it has a serious message behind it, we spend too much time with our phones. Our phones are with us more often than we are with our significant others, we even use it to connect to them. It's a bit of social awareness to get people to realize that we need to put our phone down sometimes because when it becomes more important than real people, there's a problem.

Brace Yourself: This Korean Music Video Is About To Rule Your Life

Brace Yourself: This Korean Music Video Is About To Rule Your Life | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
Now, I've seen some crazy stuff while graining on the web's surfbort. (Some things are too crazy to mention here, but take me to drinks and I'll regale some escapades.) But, never has something so peculiar flashed across my screen.

Because, whatever is going on in Korean DJ/producer Hitchhiker's video for "11" transcends space and time, and enters (perhaps even creates?) a new dimension. It's like Gaspar Noé enlisted M.I.A. and avid Second Life users who create bizarre GIFs for Tumblr to make a video for his auto-tuned baby chant.

On top of that, there's what looks like a chrome version of Laurence Fishburne's character from The Signal busting some dad-style dance moves. It's a mess — a beautiful, whacked-out mess that will soon come to dominate the Internet in the same ways Nyan cat and the Harlem Shake did. Consider this your warning.
Jeff Domansky's insight:

Now that's whack! No possible explanation LOL. Maybe it's Psy in disguise?
