What does Bo Burnham’s special INSIDE really mean?

“Hey, everyone. Look who stopped by to say ‘hello’. It’s Socko!” — Bo Burnham’s INSIDE, Netflix, 2021
Bo Burnham’s bleak (and painfully real) view of the world has been there from the start actually. Let’s stop putting on Instagram filters and face the pain we’ve been hiding as a generation.
Let go of your secrets and run naked for Bo (metaphorically) — Bo Burnham’s INSIDE, Netflix, 2021
the state of a generation right now.

1. The joy of the internet ^o^

Bo to the way the world works right now.
”Can a single person shut the fuck up about every single thing for an hour? Is that possible?” — Bo Burnham’s INSIDE, Netflix, 2021
Less emo, more …criticizing it :) (also emo).

2. Global Warming

The visuals beautifully encapsulate the dark nursery rhymes of the song about the ending of the world.

“You say the whole world’s ending, honey, it already did. You’re not going to slow it, heaven knows you’ve tried,”

“Where everybody knows everybody. Knows everybody” — Bo Burnham’s INSIDE, Netflix, 2021

How wefeel.

3. Wealth exploitation and inequality

Millennials, you’re going to love this one.
Cottagecore on Pinterest.
“Cottagecore is the Summer 2020 Trend You’re Wearing Without Even Realizing It” — I know it’s from last year, but think about what that headline is saying right now. Cottagecore is about living in a cottage away from the city and eating from your own farm.
WE ARE ALL HAPPYYYY!!

How are you feeling?
Do you like the show?
Are you tired of it?
N̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶m̶i̶n̶d̶,̶ ̶I̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶’̶t̶ ̶w̶a̶n̶n̶a̶ ̶k̶n̶o̶w̶
Are you finding it boring?
Too fast? Too slow?
I̶’̶m̶ ̶a̶s̶k̶i̶n̶g̶,̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶’̶t̶ ̶a̶n̶s̶w̶e̶r̶
‘̶C̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶I̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶’̶t̶ ̶w̶a̶n̶n̶a̶ ̶k̶n̶o̶w̶

Is there anyone out there?
Or am I all alone?
I̶t̶ ̶w̶o̶u̶l̶d̶n̶’̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶d̶i̶f̶f̶e̶r̶e̶n̶c̶e̶
S̶t̶i̶l̶l̶,̶ ̶I̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶’̶t̶ ̶w̶a̶n̶n̶a̶ ̶k̶n̶o̶w̶
I thought it’d be over by now
But I got a while to go
