Teenagers (A Short Definition) -- A group of emotionally overdosed human beings who believe that reinforcing petty, childish conformity to the most popular social norm in their circles of experience will somehow elevate their maturity to the level of adults.
When it comes to this particular age group, I honestly don't have a lot of good things to say. I know that this behavior is part of our natural development but does it have to be so darned obnoxious? Case in point, the program known as Teens React To ... a series of videos where teenagers are herded together and exposed to brief clips of tv shows, movie trailers, ect. and then, well, they react to it and give their opinions.
The series was created by Benny and Rafi Fine, a duo of professional filmmakers, who have garnered (according to info posted on their youtube channel) over 350 million views from their web created content. So what does any of this have to do with anything?
Recently one of their panels of 'polished experts' decided to pick on a show that is both near and dear to my heart, namely My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic a startling re-imagining of Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise developed by Lauren Faust (of Cats Don't Dance, Powerpuff Girls, and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends fame!). The series has reached a wide audience, creating diehard fans, some of whom affectionately refer to themselves as Bronies (for male fans) and Pega-Sisters (for the ladies).
The video Teens React To My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is more or less an attack on the fanbase by the teens involved, who I might add, ONLY WATCHED THE INTRO TO THE SERIES, and nothing else. As Mr. Holmes once stated:
"It is a Capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgement."
From A Study In Scarlet, Chapter 3
But thankfully there is a voice of reason shouting above the inane prattling of the hormonally poisoned delegation! A group of Bronies have decided to fight fire with fire, offering their analysis of the teens behavior! A commentary on a commentary, you say? And a sound one indeed! Enjoy!
