The women behind viral video sensation “Activewear“, Skitbox, have released a new video parodying the notorious practice of trying to “one up” someone else.
The video sees two old uni friends bump into each other and justify their priorities in life, like whether marriage and kids or casual sex and freedom to travel is the better life to live, and, for some weird reason, compete over who has a more dramatic sob story and nastier health problems.
It’s safe to say most of us have been there, trying to come out on top of a conversation with someone you haven’t seen in years, or with an old friend you ended on bad terms with and need to prove yourself to. We’d venture to say this isn’t a habit exclusive to women as the clip suggests, though.
But, hey, man or woman, if you’re happy with yourself and the life you live you shouldn’t feel the need to justify or prove yourself to anyone, as cliché as it sounds. Enough with the serious stuff, watch the video yourself above and see if you can relate to the scenario. It might make you think twice next time you bump into that ex boyfriend or competitive classmate, because there’s nothing like an exaggerated parody video to put you in check.
