Twerking Fail – Sense of Reality

Twerking Fail – Sense of Reality

As a common user of YouTube and other forms of social networking sites, this video was definitely one of the most intense of them. What was thought to be breaking news and a horrific event of what appears to be a young girl “twerking” and eventually falls into a glass table. After seeing how quick this video went viral and even began taking spots on local and national news broadcast, my sense of reality really was questioned. I’m all for funny videos, however, when the video is intentionally designed by Jimmy Kimmel to trick the minds of its viewers really bothered me.

We all see videos go viral but how often do news outlets broadcast those videos in an attempt to inform viewers on the dangers of perfuming such actions. News and media outlets are there because we as viewers trust their expertise. Now that people are going the extra mile to trick viewers into believing their recordings and other things are true, we’re now faced to decide for ourselves what is true and what is not. In my opinion, the reality of what is real and what is fake has definitely caused me to raise an eyebrow and do more research regarding a story.
