2016: The Movie

I saw the video above, from Friend Dog Studios, last night on Facebook, and I thought it was hilarious. So much so, I had to go find the YouTube version so share here.

New Year’s is an arbitrary point to begin/end years, but this year for a lot of reasons many of us are looking forward to it precisely because in our culture it represent the end of one year and the beginning of another one—and the chance to begin fresh.

I don’t know anyone who will miss 2016, with all the deaths of beloved celebrities, the election of the Orange Menace, Brexit, natural disasters, wars, terrorism—the list of things in 2016 that were truly awful is long and depressing. Which makes humour and videos like this all the more important, I think.

Laughing beats crying.
