Celebrity Culture

This video is a metaphor for consumer society. A gang of vicious photographers surround a woman and her children. Their cameras violently strobe her face, stealing her image. She pleads, protests, and runs. They persist. It is all to feed the voracious appetites of a populace hungry for celebrity gossip. The frenzy here so apparent is the same that sustains the mad drive of consumer culture.

This disgusts me, and it shouldn't be about karma or playing with fire and getting burned at all. Regardless if she's a famous person or not, this kind of scene should make you wince and think about what we've become.

I wouldn't cry for her, she choose a career that is entirely based on this type of exploitation.

I cry for the millions of people who feel stronger emotions about celebrities than they do about the people in their own lives.
