Man, today must be “get off the computer and enjoy life day”, because both of my posts for today are essentially that theme. I highly recommend watching the “Look Up” video before catching this one. I honestly believe that this simple video from Sesame Street better illustrates the points of “Look Up” in a less heavy-handed way.
I highly recommend watching this for the song alone. Zachery Levi from Chuck and Tangled reveals he’s a pretty good singer, and the song feels better written than the “Look Up” video poet. It’s odd that it doesn’t feel preachy, even though it is dumbed down for a Sesame Street audience. Best of all, it is catchy and fun.
I couldn’t help but notice that there is a scene where Grover is using an Oculus Rift or some sort of VR headset. I point this out because Samsung is planning on putting out a VR headset of their own. I don’t have much details about that, but it is showing that VR technology is getting better. This means we have a lot of potential to shut out “A Lovely Sunny Day”.
