Break.com releases a new video that anyone in a relationship should see (but not while you’re on a date).
The funny video and picture site Break.com just might have created the definitive long song of the modern era with “I Just Texted To Say I Love You.”
Not only is the song about social media, it is also a parody and in today’s Internet age, parodies are all the rage.
Starring Sarah Hyland from “Modern Family’ and Matt Prokop from “High School Musical 3”, with vocals by former American Idoler Elliot Yamin, “I Just Texted To Say I Love You” is almost more alarming than it is humorous.
In the video, Hyland plays a woman who has forgotten how to communicate with her boyfriend in real life, ignoring him as she expresses her feelings on the Internet via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, WordPress, Google+ and YouTube. At one point Prokop mimics blowing his brains out to get Hyland’s attention from across the table in the restaurant, to no avail: Hyland is too busy. She really needs to share a picture of her nachoes.
The song makes reference to getting on Huffington Post, as does the video’s description, so when Huffington Post linked to the video in the last hour, with the line “Today love is all about technology,” the video hit a meta factor most Internet users would find uncomfortable.
Break’s “I Just Texted To Say I Love You” comes shortly after their viral success, “The Google+ Song” parody, done to the tune of Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust.”
Alas, some Internet denizens are none too impressed with Break’s new video direction. Writes JasoonWorks on the “I Just Texted To Say I Love You” YouTube video: “Attention Break: Stop making these shit music videos and keep posting videos of people getting hurt.”
