Pinterest just as Pinfuriating IRL

15 May

Great Pinterest satire, complete with red velvet cupcakes, flowered headbands, and cats. This Comediva video captures the stalkerish, greedy, envy-driven (aka “aspirational”) platform perfectly:


The crazed, hypnotized “so… pretty!” gets me every time. As someone might say in a 3rd year media studies class, in the video Comediva thoroughly explores the slippage between the consumerist objectification of life experiences that the platform encourages and its sweet, cutesy, innocent tone.

You can find the group behind the video, of course, on their Pinterest account. I came across it on Inside FMM’s Twitter feed.
