Randi Zuckerberg directs 80s-themed music video on feminist NFTs

For the uninitiated, Randy Zuckerberg is the 40-year-old sister of Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and has led a number of tech startups and lifestyle brands over the years. Currently, Zuckerberg is a big Web 3.0 advocate who runs a number of blockchain technology projects, which we have to thank for what is arguably the worst thing on the internet this week.

“Ten years ago I sang this song on Broadway,” Zuckerberg tweeted Monday, along with a video parody of 1984’s Twisted Sister hit single, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” with the lyrics changed to English. “We’re All Gonna Make It” in reference to a female-led crypto movement.

“Today I sing this song, surrounded by new friends, as a rallying cry for the women of web3. Together we can achieve anything. And have fun doing it! she added, with a post -scriptum to search for “funny cameos” and apologize for the language at the end.

Oddly enough, Zuckerberg sang the song on Broadway — or, at least, a version of it that wasn’t interfered with beyond belief — during a 2014 stint in the musical. rock of ages. It turns out that Zuckerberg has a handful of Broadway credits under his belt, although we absolutely cannot understand why the career path did not follow.

Oh, and the language that Zuckerberg warns about is when she yells “Let’s fucking go!” towards the end of the video, just in case her repeated chants of “LFG” throughout weren’t enough.

We’re not going to scold the tech mogul’s sister for using foul language that’s nowhere near as bad as some of the words that were no doubt going through our heads as we watched the video, and we’re not nor will we attempt to break down the lyrics to make sense of them.*

(*But also, really? Turning a song about bored, angry white teenagers into a feminist anthem when Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and like, every Madonna song was right there? Alright, knock- you.)

Either way, although it took a few days to figure it out, on Friday the video of Zuckerberg had started making its way across the internet as people reacted with unflinching horror and revulsion.

“I’m in a bunker, and this has only made my day worse,” tweeted one user with a Ukrainian flag next to his handle, though it’s unclear if he’s actually in it. a bunker in Ukraine.

“This is the next covid variant,” joked another.

“Everything is a pyramid scheme. There is no longer a meaningful way to connect with others,” observed comedian Jake Flores. “We’re all going to get there.”

“Finish me now,” said music critic Anthony Fantano deadpan.

Podcaster Josiah Hughes offered a sarcastic message of support.

“Again, I am available to talk the rich out of doing things like this. My rates are reasonable and there is a sliding scale,” joked TV writer @Caissie.

One developer even voiced his professional opinion, tweeting that the real reason everyday people stay away from crypto culture is “measureless cringe”.

“It’s Emil’s family. We had to remove his phone after he watched this,” crypto podcaster Emil DeRosa joked. “Will post updates as they come. If you see him, don’t tell him he’s Mark Zuckerberg’s sister. We fear this will make matters worse.

Before releasing her music video to an unsuspecting world, Zuckerberg took the time to reintroduce herself on Twitter, calling herself a “passionate supporter of women in tech and finance.”

We have to assume that having a brother who is one of the 10 richest people in the world probably lowers the bet of investing in NFTs quite a bit, just like giving yourself a roofie can take advantage of watching this video. God protects you!
