In SA we get a lot of woke ads where diverse people awake to social distance in montages while wearing masks.
First it was all this stay home stuff, and how cool it is to do yoga, wear pajamas all day, learn to play Happy Birthday on the piano, and now
I wonder, how many of these models grin like a Shetland pony under those masks?
I actually love my camouflage mask (when I finally found them I bought two), but what irks me is I can't tag a photo on Facebook with that mask, and
it won't even go to My Photos.
If social media is super-woke, shouldn't it encourage people to only post pics with masks?
Instead there's mask discrimination!
I even wear my mask while surreptitiously training in the park (the gyms are closed). But at a stage the masks drop, and we stare at other in shock
for a moment: "Eek! A man with a naked nose!" But after a minute it's cool. Long or short, we've all got one. No big deal.
But the ads are unbearably preachy, although YouTube keeps offering a month free preview of an ad free option.
Never took it though, instead I opt for demonetized channels, which means ad-free, and usually worth watching.
Since so many things can get a clip or channel demonetized, eventually they will outgrow the ads.
Although "demonetized" means the content creators (unless totally charitable) will still throw in a plea for alternative funding or some game or VPN
promotion (which falsely promises you untraceable web activity), but I'm willing to overlook that.
