Not gonna watch a video with a commercial longer than the video.

*kicks baby*

F*ck you for wasting my time.

I know I'll sound old-fashioned, but I believe some things deserve privacy. I wouldn't have made a video of this just to go viral. That's heartbreaking personal stuff. Everyone is after their 15 minutes of fame, regardless of the cost to others. I'd be horrified if that was something I had sent upward. It's not for others entertainment.

Since the focus of the video was clearly the woman and her baby I have trouble thinking this actually happened. If Facebook increased the narcissism of people by 900% then Tik Tok is like 3000%.

Must try and remember that the MSN site really doesn't work well on modern operating systems.

Not glorifying that with a click or turning off my Noscript, so I'm just going to go the rest of my life assuming it said "Don't forget to drink your Ovaltine."

What the hell kind of tend is this?   Watch video for an easily printable message?   (Which wasn't worth reporting)

That's worse than the Twitter post shown in a screenshot, captioned with the content of the tweet, then quoted again in the 'article' which puts in a full sentence that there was a tweet containing (text of the tweet), and the replies the tweet invoked.

I don't let my baby play with random trash in a park.
But I guess that's why I miss out on making viral videos like this.
 
2021-06-09 1:38:22 AM  
Lemme guess: baby finds balloon, swallows it, chokes to death.

Yeah, that is pollen worthy, subs.

The only point of TikTok seems to be "going viral" at any cost. As such, some of the content that gets posted there is actually quite disgusting. There are literally clips of surgeries being performed on tiktok. There are videos of dental procedures, other medical shiat. No warning, no option not to see it. Then you have the people who are "charitable" to the less fortunate. But they need everyone on tiktok to know what a good person they are, so of course they film it. No regard at all for the fact they're filming someone at possibly their lowest point. There's also the people who copy someone else who went viral first, because you know the world would stop turning if they didn't do their own take on someone else's idea. A lot of people on Tiktok are just assholes who need attention. The majority, I'd say. That's why you get people on there who promise to solve a problem you have, if you like their video. It's basically a pop-up ad. Or similarly, people who think they've figured out a solution to a problem when it actually doesn't exist, so they had to invent the problem and the solution.

Social media is certainly at its dumbest point yet, and Tiktok helped get us there.

Yeah but then how would she get attention?

Sad her kid died but that is no reason to litter. What goes up...

Buddy of mine and his daughters did the 'balloon to heaven' thing for mother's day. Lost his wife to cancer last year and his grief counselor suggested it. So I'm guessing it's not that uncommon.

I put that balloon there and it's a total scam. I wait until a hot chick finds the balloon and reads it, then I pop out of the bushes when they're most vulnerable and I say: 'Excuse me. I think you've found my balloon.'

Works better than a puppy. I've gotten a dozen numbers so far this week.

Pretty sure dropping puppies on people's lawns is not well received

If tiktok is cancer, then this MSN regurgitation of a tiktok video is a metastasis.

See if you were cool farkers, you would have posted what the message said!  But after complaining about social media and the attention hungry culture it has spawned, you go and make us give them exactly what they want. You are letting them win!

But on a serious note, I was never going to look!  This combines three things I am either baffled by or am nervous around.
1.A family moment forever captured on 2d or 3d, perhaps with filter and hashtags  shared with millions. They have every right to do it. I avoid all such videos unless they involve pets and positive emotion.
2. Grief being used as fuel or inspiration for that moment. Even when it is real, I feel uncomfortable to watch it. At my age, grief is a frequent thing because of so many deaths around me. It is something to come to terms with, not something to seek out so I do not view videos that I know will be sad.
3. I am also mildly terrified of Babies and balloons. Babies for being small and fragile and incapable of clear communication and balloons for the sudden popping sound.

Tiktok also bothers a bit more than Facebook or Googke or Twitter in yerms of privacy even though I do not trust any of them. I do not think I could credibly defend that one though.

So I was never going to check it out anyway! Ha ha! Joke is on you influencer culture!

Yeah, I don't let my trash play with random babies, either. Those things are filthy disease factories.

Persnickety Paladin: See if you were cool farkers, you would have posted what the message said!



I went to the effort of watching it just for you, it said:
"I'm so thankful to have had you as my mom. I know you're watching over me. Save a spot up there for me. Ima go hard just for you. I wish you were here with me. You always believed in me."

Ouch.

That makes me sad.

I also wish I would have had a mom that I could have said that to and meant it.

And heaven marked it "Return to sender. Addressee unknown"?

Wow, that really is sad.

You finally found a group of people to whom you feel superior. Go you.

Yeah, sorry kid, the balloon didn't make it to heaven, so Mommy never got it.

/ also, fake AW is fake
 
2021-06-09 9:46:19 AM  
...oh, and it nearly took down a frickin' 737, choked 3 geese, a sea turtle and Bambi, whose mother is *also* dead, but Bambi accepts that and doesn't do meaningless shiat..

Every time I see one of these balloon releases in memory of things (always on TV, never seen one IRL) my blood boils.

Why doesn't everyone of those people get a ticket for littering??  Why is this allowed?

You do realize they don't go to heaven, Right people?

I swear if I saw this happening I'd have half a mind to go grab a shotgun and blow them outta the sky then tell the family to pick them up.

*ITG rant off*
 
2021-06-09 2:15:06 PM  
fark the AW who made the video and posted it on the internet
fark MSN for having a video instead of a picture, or just the words
Also fark MSN for putting an ad before the unnecessary video

Also, Subby and Fark mods. Really? You submitted and greened this stuff?

Many thanks to you for the TotalFark, very kind of you. It wasn't so bad to sit through, worse things happen at sea and all that, and somebody had to do it. Now no one else here has to.
