Micah Tyler shares sings his song “You’ve Gotta Love Millennials,” which should bring a smile to the face of anyone that has interacted more than once with a Millennial.
The song is a parody that was performed at a church conference for encouraging people to see past stereotypes and recognize the unique potential that millennials have!
If you were born between the early 1980’s and early 2000’s then you are a Millennial and will soon be destined to inherit this wonderful country of ours. Someday one of you might even become President of the United States. Given our current two choices of old folks I’m not so sure that having a younger person would be such a bad idea.
An example of their thin skin was exhibited between millennial media members and the cast and producers of a new CBS comedy series, The Great Indoors, during the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.
Actor Joel McHale and CBS executive producer Mike Gibbons were previewing the new CBS series to reporters, and tensions ran high after Gibbons told a story about a CBS focus group.
Gibbons explained that a millennial focus group member, viewing the show’s pilot episode, was turned off by the portrayal of millennials as needing to be treated with kid gloves because of their thin skin.
Gibbons said the woman running the focus group responded to the criticism by saying, “So, you were offended by millennials being portrayed as too sensitive?” Ha!
Then, according to Deadline, a “Millennial Media Member” interrupted the focus group and grilled the panel of actors and creators, asking why the majority of the jokes maligned millennials.
“I’m a millennial myself. How are we so coddled, and what about our overly politically correct workplace bothers you?” the young reporter purportedly said.
Then, Stephen Fry, who plays the charismatic founder of The Great Outdoors magazine, said there is “an element of coddling” and “an element in which you have it tougher than the generation before.”
“Yeah, no sh*t,” the Millennial Media Member reportedly said in response to Fry.
The Millennial Media Member apparently wanted an answer from Gibbons, not Fry.
“A great example is how you interrupted my answer,” Gibbons fired back.
The promotional footage below for The Great Indoors was released in May:
