Remember before Hurricane Sandy, when the Internet asked, “What if Gangnam Style is just a giant rain dance and we brought this hurricane upon ourselves?” This is how we should think of YOLO and the Mayan Apocalypse. Drake is a great, great rapper, an inspiration to all stifled young Jewish boys struggling to bring home a dollar on mediocre Canadian teen shows. He doesn’t know his name, but he gave us the HYFR music video, without which we would never know how Lil Wayne would act at a Bar Mitzvah.
But he also gave us “The Motto,” a song that bestowed #YOLO — You Only Live Once — on an unsuspecting world. YOLO is rarely used properly, it sounds like “yoyo,” it’s unbearably annoying and we have to hear adults with real jobs say it. And lest we forget, it may have actually killed someone. So we wouldn’t be surprised if it hastens the end of the world as we know it.
