Everyone talks about the greatness of technology, but there are times when people are reminded how much technology can get in the way.
Case in point: the T-Mobile G2. Imagine what would happen if the G2 – or any modern smartphone, really – existed in the movies that we know and all. The awesomeness of a smartphone would have condensed Usual Suspects to a 10 second mini film, Citizen Kane would not be remembered as the greatest movie ever, and Casablanca‘s classic ending would be completely different.
College Humor made a joke video about this very premise, parodying several American film classics and showing how different they would have been had smartphones been as prevalent in these stories as they are in daily life.
Yes, I’m aware that this is probably a giant product placement paid for by HTC but it still got a chuckle out of me, so I decided to share. Check out the video below.
