We're all obsessed with Facebook likes, but what if it went too far?
Might As Well Face It, You're Addicted To Likes
Written by Paul Briganti & Adam Conover
Music video. We cut between seeing a Facebook "likes junkie" post obsessively on Facebook, and a Mark Zuckerberg lookalike dance in front of a bunch of models in giant blue thumbsup costumes.
The first verse starts with someone in the bathroom on their phone.
You lock the door Swiping on
Your iphone 4
You post a status You're feeling numb Until you see
That little thumb
Amount of likes Isn't that great Perhaps it was Posted too late
Then come the likes They start to stack If you're a junkie This is your crack
Woah, you post a pic of yourself and a celeb, Jaleel White
Or an image with a quote of somethin' Gandhi said, that's right You're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to likes
Such a cheap High to feel Validation
That's barely real
￼Feel like a king
Oh wait that dude
Likes everything! (It don't mean a thing!)
Two likes at most Embarrassing Delete that post
You pander hard You feel no shame But don't feel bad We're all to blame
Woah, Like this if you love the taste of cookie dough, or froyo! A picture of my new puppy's first ever snow, you know
You're gonna have to face it you're addicted to likes
Just got my dream job, you're addicted to likes Which glasses fit me, you're addicted to likes
Link Facebook and Twitter, you get double the likes A cat up on a fridge, you're addicted to likes
Might as well face it you're addicted to likes
(Quick guitar solo)
I made a post
The likes were bleak No one will know, Repost next week
Maybe I use
This as a crutch Because I'm not
Liked very muchNah!
You post a rant when you don't get likes, those jerks
Maybe take a breather, get back to work (reveal the main character is a doctor and has been ignoring a nervous patient this entire time)
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to likes
Do you like my haircut, you're addicted to likes Gonna start a juice cleanse, you're addicted to likes Intro song to Doug, you're addicted to likes
