What do you do if it’s “Time to BeReal” during a bank robbery? This Saturday Night Live sketch has the answer.
This week’s host Miles Teller and SNL cast member Mikey Day play bank robbers in the middle of a holdup when the hostages’ daily BeReal notifications go off. If you know about the social media platform BeReal, then you know users only have two minutes to post a picture. “It’s the only honest social media,” explains Bowen Yang’s hostage character. “So there’s no posturing? And it’s not status-oriented,” says Teller’s bank robber quickly catching on.
Watch as this parody hilariously captures the BeReal experience by asking how far users will go in the name of authenticity.
BeReal promised authenticity online. That doesn’t exist.
