Reply March 11, 2015 at 7:56 pm applause Reply March 11, 2015 at 8:31 pm ::clutching my sides from laughing so hard:: Okay, I'm not, really, clutching my sides, but in my mind I laughed so hard it scared my dog and cats. Reply March 11, 2015 at 8:39 pm Our business model is that VCs will just give us money, because…. we're in San Francisco, AND, we have an IDEA!! Reply March 11, 2015 at 9:52 pm Terrifyingly on point to the point where it's almost not funny, but still is. This should be the app the new season of Silicon Valley focuses on. Reply March 11, 2015 at 10:52 pm hahahahaaa best line, "because this is san francisco, and we have an idea!" i totally agree that this should somehow be a storyline in HBO's 'Silicon Valley'. #brilliant #sanfrancisco Reply March 11, 2015 at 11:50 pm Really funny! Reply March 11, 2015 at 11:53 pm Brilliant! @Cultivated Wit and @Baratunde Thurston Reply March 12, 2015 at 12:25 am OH SHI– This is amazing. You nailed it so hard. Reply March 12, 2015 at 4:08 am sense of humour failure, totally. How crap is this? Reply March 12, 2015 at 4:35 am I just rented out my sense of entitlement! Thanks WellDeserved! Reply March 12, 2015 at 5:01 am Ironically, this actually sounds like a good idea. Reply March 12, 2015 at 7:09 am So stupid. Charge a woman $5 to walk with you and feel 'safe'. Sooner or later you're gonna have the creeps lining up and pretending to be the safe ones.. Reply March 12, 2015 at 1:56 pm Oh shit that last scene! Reply March 12, 2015 at 3:59 pm Love it!!! Reply March 12, 2015 at 4:33 pm I could actually see this getting funded… Reply March 12, 2015 at 5:17 pm This is brilliant! Reply March 12, 2015 at 6:30 pm do i get white privilege and first world privilege i think i could get some good cash out of this Reply March 12, 2015 at 7:34 pm Hahahahahahaha! This was so amazing. Reply March 12, 2015 at 8:11 pm Zero female privileges mentioned. Must be a real privilege to be above lampooning. Reply March 12, 2015 at 11:34 pm They seem to conflate privilege with perks. Free lunches and dentist appointments are perks from work, not privileges. Not being cat called is, I guess, a privilege of being a dude. Reply March 13, 2015 at 12:43 am Right on! Very clever. I am so sick of hearing of a "shared" economy that CHARGES for everything. Sharing means giving. Time to give back SF! Reply March 13, 2015 at 1:23 am This is actually a good idea. Remove the jokey bits and you have yourself a nifty little app Reply March 13, 2015 at 5:05 am hahahahah…this is sickening to the core…trust americans to sell these perks…lolany further ideas you want to monetize ? lol Reply March 13, 2015 at 6:06 am While I disagree with the underlying idea of privilege, this is hilarious. Well done. Reply March 13, 2015 at 1:01 pm Lol this was priceless. Great job! Reply March 13, 2015 at 2:27 pm I'm bummed that you did the VC line and the thing at the end, because without those there's a decent chance that some pack of liberal undergrads at Haverford would have raised a storm about this as if it were real. Reply March 13, 2015 at 3:15 pm The producers of Just In New York (a Spaniard, a Venezuelan and a Mexican-American/Puerto Rican) are proud to offer the latest listing on Well Deserved: Pronouncing Spanish words Correctly Without Poshness or Irony. Finally, you can order "chorizo and tomatillo salsa" on your brunch omelette like a native-speaker without having all your mono-lingual friends give you the stink-eye, tell your buddy they've got "cojones" for canceling that Uber ride at the last minute, or offer to go "salsa dancing" with that guy from Tinder without sounding like a c*nt!https://youtu.be/bOr1_RDxU3E Reply March 13, 2015 at 5:37 pm "Cool video!" comment will cost you $2.I'll Tweet this for another $2.I'll upvote it on YouTube for a cool buck, since who cares about upvotes on YouTube.Any takers? Hmmm? Reply March 13, 2015 at 7:07 pm 1:35 Seriously, I had a friend do this to get a New York cab, lol Reply March 14, 2015 at 2:45 am Wow. I hope the other Comedy Hack Day projects get videos! This was amazing and perfect! Reply March 14, 2015 at 6:58 pm I have privilege. But so does everyone else in a Western, developed country. Even the homeless have a better shot than most people in Africa. I could use my privilege to actually go out and change things, to make a real difference in the lives of the truly less-fortunate in the world. But that's too much work. So instead I'll fix minor problems in the Western world and pretend I deserve the same kind of self-satisfaction. Sometimes I don't even fix the problem. Most of the time I just reblog or retweet something somebody made or said (like a snarky video about a privilege app) and pretend that's equivalent to actually doing something. Most people in the Western world are either ignorant of or okay with the exploitation and suffering that goes on in the world, especially if it's in service to maintain their standard of living. I go one step further than that self-centeredness: not only do I try to make them feel bad for their ignorance and acceptance, I do so on my computer whose parts were mined and assembled by slave labor, while wearing my "This Is What a Feminist Looks Like" T-shirt that was put together by low-paid female wage-slave labor. Now if you'll excuse me, a games publisher has just made a video game with an attractive female lead, and duty calls. Reply March 17, 2015 at 3:26 am The problem with this conceptualization of privilege is that it has nothing to do with rights. In Western countries, men, women, regardless of ethnicity, have the same rights. To say that it is a privilege to NOT be profiled by the police confuses the meaning of the word 'privilege'. It is not a privilege to not be disenfranchised, to not have your rights observed, because of your perceived ethnicity. In the case of profiling, the problem is racism (a form of disenfranchisement) which completely violates the rights granted to us by law, not privilege. It's kind of like saying that it's a privilege to not be robbed and beaten. It is not a privilege to live in a society where others are disenfranchised. There is no benefit to living in a society where genealogy is a divisive issue. If no benefits are felt by a so-called privileged group, why call it privilege? Let's be accurate in our framing of this issue – which is a problem of criminal disenfranchisement. Reply March 17, 2015 at 7:36 pm Thanks @Cultivated Wit Reply March 17, 2015 at 9:59 pm I have some things I take for granted that I can sell to people. Reply March 17, 2015 at 11:25 pm Kasima Tharnpipitchai, you are Thai. Look back at living in Thailand, in some ways and many ways it is far better than SF. I know, I have lived in both places. Cheers na krup. Reply March 18, 2015 at 12:27 am http://www.rideleap.com/ Oh the irony… 😉 Reply March 18, 2015 at 12:06 pm LMAOOOOO!!!!!! Reply March 18, 2015 at 5:38 pm Are people really surprised? Cheating on benefits claims has been a thing for a long time. Scalping company tickets. Sample sales. Re-gifting. We humans are all about this–admit it!! Reply March 18, 2015 at 10:51 pm Why the fuck was this racist shit video automatically included in this new autoplay function? Go fuck yourselves, every last one of you useless elitist fuckwads. Reply March 18, 2015 at 11:56 pm MAKE MORE OF THESE!!! Reply March 25, 2015 at 11:03 pm At first I was like .. this is ok … I get it … but the ending had me fall out of my chair laughing! Well done! Reply April 8, 2015 at 11:38 pm …..aaaaaaaand cue the: "OMFG THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEA!!!111!1!!" Reply April 20, 2015 at 6:22 pm Love it. Thank you for saying what needs to be said. And doing it with humor. Reply November 16, 2015 at 3:48 am "Because this is San Francisco"Oh San Francisco, a costly paradise. Reply January 16, 2016 at 1:03 pm ROFL!! This is so on-point it's hilarious! Reply September 1, 2017 at 8:33 pm omg, dat last scene lol, so wrong but so right.
