A ZOOMER has confirmed that he is just as baffled by his generation’s youth culture as everyone else is.
17-year-old Ryan Whittaker understands why older people are confused by the popularity of lip syncing TikTok videos and Logan Paul’s monumental fame because their appeal is a mystery to him as well.
Whittaker said: “I know youth culture always seems strange and ridiculous, but I think we’ve taken things a little too far. Am I meant to be into K-pop ironically or not? It’s impossible to tell.
“Not to sound all ‘Ok, Boomer’ but the slang is impenetrable as well. Is a ‘cheugy-based vibe’ a good thing or will it get me cancelled? I asked some friends to translate and all they said was ‘big yikes’, which was no help.
“Maybe I was born in the wrong era. I bet things made more sense in the Nineties when there were only hundreds of television channels and having your finger on the pulse meant watching Friends once a week.”
Millennial Nikki Hollis said: “Think you’ve got problems? One of my generation’s cultural highlights was Crazy Frog. By comparison you’re living through the Renaissance.”
