A film lasting just a smidge over two minutes has become the least likely blockbuster of the year. ‘I forgot my phone’ has been heralded as, ‘The Best Video on the Internet Today’, ‘A lesson in self control’, and ‘Smart, poignant, depressing’
Written by Charlene deGuzman and Miles Crawford, the film highlights the sorrowful state of humanity because of our collective addiction to — wait for it — smartphones.
According to the film, our phones sap the richness from life — snuggling in bed, intimate moments with our lovers and socialising with friends are all ruined because we can’t tear our zombie-like eyes from our screens.
The fun-sized blockbuster has been shared 32 million times on YouTube.
