Everything's Awesome

Louis CK's message in the video "Everything's Awesome/Nobody's Happy" is just that; everything is awesome... yet nobody's happy. We live in an era where we don't have to use rotary phones, we can travel across the country in only a few hours, and we don't have to go to extreme measures to get money from a bank. We take the incredible technology we have nowadays for granted. In this video, Louis CK uses satire to get his point through to the audience. First, he imitates a person getting mad at his/her phone. I think that what makes that particular bit funny is that we've ALL been there. Honestly, I did it today in English. Second, he exaggerates the time it took for people to get across the country before we were able fly on airplanes; he says it took thirty years (lolololol), when in reality, it'd take a few days. The last bit of satire I found was when he called rotary phones primitive; he said we'd create sparks when we'd dial numbers. Again, lolololol.
