From #MontyPython #LifeOfBrian Eric Idle's famous skit. A crowd has chased Brian (the synonym for #Jesus ) through a town to his bedroom window after he did something pretty ordinary that was mistakenly believed as being messiah-like. Love this skit's portrayal of iconism and it's ridiculousness. I don't know if iconism is a real word, I just made it up.
BRIAN TELLS US: (about social media as much as anything else.)
BRIAN: Youve got it all wrong
You don't need to follow me
You don't need to follow ANYBODY
You've got to think for yourselves.
You're ALL INDIVIDUALS
(CROWD).... Yes, We're all individuals!!!
BRIAN: You're all different!
(CROWD) Yes! We are all different!
(ONE MAN ALONE)) I'm not.....
BRIAN: You've all got to work it out for yourselves!
(CROWD) Yes, we've got to work it out for ourselves!
(CROWD) Tell us more!
BRIAN That's the point! Don't let anyone tell you what to do!!
