First World problems read by Third World people
By Rich Leigh on Monday, October 15, 2012
Here’s a really smart promotional video put together for US-based water charity Water is Life:
In the minute-long film, men, women and children from third world countries make statements you’d expect to hear from a spoilt person living in a more developed part of the world – known throughout Twitter as #firstworldproblems.
The video, which ends ‘#firstworldproblems are not real problems’ – though I’m not sure anybody ever disputed this – includes some absolute gems intended to tug on your heart strings:
“I hate it when my phone charger won’t reach my bed”
“I hate it when my house is so big, I need two wireless routers” and
“When I have to write my maid a check, but I forget her last name”.
A great charity PR campaign and one that should help increase donations, given it’s been viewed approximately 1.5m times since the 3rd October.
