  • Las cicatrices del vagabundo indican que tuvo varios implantes y se los quitaron, es decir son robables los best friends y hasta pueden matar por ellos debido a la gran adiccion.

  • Maybe the homeless guy was his future self, with all those cuts on the side of his head, his just stuck in a endless cycle of addiction, which is essentially the meaning of addiction, damn

  • Such an incredible synthesis of technology obsession and drug addiction, all wrapped in an excellent style. Well done.

  • Very relatable. It's very hard to make friends, & the ones that already exist aren't always available. So at times, it's easier to just indulge in fictional characters & lose myself in fantasies. Albeit, I'm not as obsessed as the man in the video, but I could see a parallel version of myself in that situation.

  • people talking about “well you’d have thought he’d learned his lesson, right!” like that’s the lesson he would’ve chosen from this. the lesson he probably would have learned was to be patient next time, more careful. we all know he’d go back and get a new one, we all know we’d do the same.

  • The thing that scares me the most is this might actually happen one day because of how advanced technology is getting and it might become like a drug to a lot of people like what happened to Arthur it shows that if you get addicted to something it can become dangerous even with small stuff that aren't drugs alcohol or cigarettes it's dangerous if you get addicted to something

  • First thought in my mind when they didn't help him is that, real friends are always there to help you (well, sadly they're not) while fake friends are just there to make you temporarily happy (just like those imaginary friends)...

  • I'm more concerned abt how mainstream those "best friends" are even though the technology is literally inside their brains Edit: Oh and I'm guessing that since the eye droppers makes the battery of the tech immediately full, then to charge it, resting ur eyes might be how it charges. Putting the message in a nutshell, "Don't strain ur eyes humans"
