Get Off The Phone (Rhett & Link)

For an intensely ironic experience, watch this on your phone :)

- Hey man, I've recently been doing some contemplation about people's dependency upon cellular telephones
- Yea man, me too. I've really noticed that everyone always seems to be on their mobile device instead of really being in the moment.
- Exactly, and I feel like this is a very significant issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
- Yes, immediately.
- We really should do something about this.

Here we have a man
Who's chosen to Instagram
His apple pie, a la mode.
While he fumbles through the filters
His ice cream has gotten "a la hot"
And the pie "a la cold."

As you can see
This street performer's drawn a crowd
To watch him do his thing.
But instead of just enjoying the show
it seems everyone's decided
To make a documentary.

Notice this unreasonably attractive couple
Enjoying a reasonably priced Italian dinner together.
Social networking instead of working
On getting to know each other better

How does that filtered picture taste
Since your dessert has gone to waste?

When do you think you ever will
Wanna watch this portrait juggling film?

You know you want to touch each other
Doesn't that feel good?
He's my brother.

Get off the phone now!
It's gonna be okay
There's no need to be afraid.
It doesn't love you
Its gonna die one day.
The government is probably
Spying on you with it anyway.

Here we have a stereotypical teen
Forced to endure "Family Game Night."
He's stereotypically texting
And missing his mom
Demonstrate a carousel ride.

Little Ethan here
Is celebrating being the center of the universe
For one year.
But "The World's Greatest Dad"
Is more worried about 'Facebooking' it
Than actually being here.

Let's listen in and see if we can get some context.
"Please hurry! We're at 382 Pine."
He has the nerve to make a phone call
At such a pivotal moment in his friend's life.

How could you be so disengaged?
While precious memories are being made?

Do you really think your friends need
Another baby picture in their feed?

Don't be such a self- centered guy.
Now isn't that better?
"I think he just died."

Get off the phone now!
It's gonna be okay.
There's no need to be afraid.
(Get off the phone now!) It doesn't love you
It's gonna die one day.
It's crawling with e-coli bacteria anyway.
(Get off the phone now!) It's gonna be okay.

Hey guys, I'm on the set of a music video, uh, there's Rhett.
- Seriously?
- What?

Get off the phone now!
It doesn't love you
Its gonna die one day.
The government is probably
Spying on you with it anyway.

Rhett & Link are here to sing you a song that rings all too true for many of us. The message of “Get Off The Phone” is a simple one. Your phone can’t love you back, and the government’s probably spying on your life with it anyway. But you don’t even have a life because you’re always on your phone!
