When I stumbled across this hilarious parody account on Twitter, I lost 30 minutes of my workday to laughter. It’s called @movie_goofs, and it tweets joke criticisms of movie “mistakes.”
The fellow behind the tweets, Sean, plays the role of a daft movie critic pointing out inaccuracies in films that, as you may have guessed from the above tweets, aren’t actually “goofs.” The best part about the account isn’t actually the jokes, funny as they may be, it’s the comments.
A shocking number of people have replied to Sean’s parody tweets by fansplaining to him why his criticisms are invalid – invariably to the delight of everyone else.
It has 42 comments and it seems like most of them are people rolling their eyes at some silly movie critic who doesn’t understand what he or she is talking about – which, of course, means they don’t get the joke.
It’s difficult, sometimes, to discern what’s earnest and what’s satire on the internet. Unless, of course, the account has the word “parody” in its description like @movie_goofs does.
Which, if you think about it, makes it even funnier when people express their indignation at Sean’s haughty criticisms. Read More>>>
