Benjamin Netanyahu Has Had Enough With Your Selfies
Israel’s Prime Minister is apparently not a fan of selfies:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is having trouble adjusting to this generation’s obsession with picture taking and photo sharing.
During a photo shoot prior to an interview session with the foreign press last week, the prime minister waxed nostalgic, lamenting in a Louis C.K.-esque manner over the failure to live in the moment among today’s selfie-crazed society.
“What do you get out of all these pictures?” Netanyahu can be seen asking an unseen cameraman in a video uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday.
“I mean, what exactly do you do with it?”
Netanyahu is answered that the photographers seek the best picture, but apparently that reply does not satisfy him.
“OK, so what? What do you do with it?”
Netanyahu is then told that many of the photos are used for “behind-the-scenes footage,” to which the prime minister simply replies “boring.”
The Israeli leader goes on to criticize society at large and reflects on the fact that excessive photography has come to replace actual living.
“I don’t understand this new world,” Netanyahu complains.
“When do they have time to live? They’re taking pictures all the time.”
Shortly after this, the Prime Minster told everyone to get off his lawn.
