Trolling the Today Show with Vodka Eyeballing
Every few months the news media picks up on some ridiculous “internet trend” that is “dangerous” to “teens”. Most recently, eating Tide Pods all but confirmed the idea that the media is either gullible and out of touch, or they are intentionally manipulative of gullible and out of touch people.
In 2010, Vodka Eyeballing was the “dangerous” fad. As a part of DAPS, I made a vlog where I (faked) vodka eyeballing. Thinking nothing of it after posting, I was surprised to find myself highlighted by the Today Show in their 6 minute piece on the trend.
