To be honest they lost my interest right about there. "YouTube generation" - give me a break! I hate these vacuous, made-up labels people come out with to try and sound cool and prove they 'have their finger on the pulse'. Utter cobblers, it really irritates me. The whole premise is old anyway.
'The Running man' - where people are killed in a game-show for public entertainment:
- Film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1987.
- Book by Stephen King, 1982.
I suppose they were for the 'MTV generation'.
'Death Race 2000' - where people are killed in a televised race for public entertainment:
- Film starring Sylvester Stallone & David Carradine, 1975.
Who was that for, the 'Seven-inch generation'?
There are probably loads more examples going back far further, but those are the ones that immediately sprang to mind. Hardly a pointed indictment of modern society if the idea is at least 36 years old...
