Considering The Buildup, I Was Left Very Underwhelmed By This Talent Show Water Bottle Toss
I was ready to be wowed. Shit, I was basically at the edge of my seat as the music built and this kid stood 10, even 15 feet away from a table with water bottle in hand. Its when he crept within spitting distance of said table that the anxiousness I felt for the impending stunt really started to dwindle. Maybe I have become jaded by the likes of the internet, but that doesn't really explain why high school kids - that have been watching viral videos since diapers - were so enthused by something I could probably successfully complete 10% of the time. I personally hope that this isn't the direction we are heading in as a society. A two foot water bottle flip gets the 'And 1 Mixtape Tour' reaction? The youth of America better plan on bringing more to the online experience than this, because I was all set for him to get me out of my seat by launching that thing up in the air from the top of the bleachers. Instead I received an underwhelming feat that I have completed on accident multiple times. Maybe I am just not seeing the irony in this, but if this all it takes to get a cheer in high school these days then I don't regret the glory years where we really had to work for our applause.
