As an American, I’m a big fan of stuff. Products, merchandise, wares — I love it all. I enjoy acquiring stuff, keeping that stuff until it degrades in worth, and then replacing it with more stuff.
Now, thanks to the generous YouTube community, I no longer need to undergo this costly and laborious process in order to satisfy my stuff interest. I can just watch unboxing videos, where a product is crystallized at its most valuable moment — right when it comes out of the box.
Are unboxing videos making us more or less reliant on stuff? We binge on them in “Internetting” Episode 6 to find out.
On second thought, can we rebox all of this? Thanks,
