I don’t know how old this is, and so maybe you’ve seen it before, but this is the first time I’ve seen it, and of course my reaction was… what? Wait, just… what? Really? Do people really feel this way?
Kids are obsessing over games and shows where you can carry around these “pocket monsters!” And why would they carry around monsters in their pockets? Well because they make contracts with these spirits from the dark realm, and somehow all this ties into video games in general and gangs and kids shooting other kids. Because naturally, kids who like Pokemon are more likely to join gangs. Or something. It might be that kids are understanding this subliminal message and the ‘obvious’ demonic, Satanic references and metaphors in this horrible show/game called Pokemon.
Or maybe they just like watching cute animals with super-powers.
Like my High School English teacher used to say, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
But maybe I’m biased. What was your reaction from watching this video?
