To cleanse the palate. There are vids, there are viral vids, and then there’s this, which has supernova’d to the tune of 3.8 million views since Saturday as of 1 p.m. ET today. Watch as this poor bastard transforms from disciplined teacher to unwitting malefactor in the “war on women” to sheepish butt of his adoring pupils’ japes in the span of two minutes.
If this had played out the same way but hadn’t been a joke, it’d have 10 million views by now and we’d be buried under an avalanche of online think pieces about privacy, technology, autonomy, and how they “intersect.” Never have I loved April Fools more.
