“i wouldn’t count on it“- janitor, breakfast club movie, life immitating art analogy:
alternate transcript subtitles:
Google: what did you wanna be when you were young?
janitor: when i was a kid i wanted to not be ripped off by youtube stealing one account & 10,000 videos off the other.
Google: don’t be a goof. i’m trying to make a serious point here. i’ve been searching 20 years, and each year these bloggers get more & more arrogant.
janitor: aw bullshit man.. comeon Google, vloggers ain’t changed, you have.
janitor: you took a searching position cause you thought it’d be fun, right.. thought you’d have summer vacations off, control information, steal & screw youtube accounts.. then you found out there was actual accountability. that really bummed you out.
Google: these vloggers turned on me, they think i’m a big fuckin joke.
janitor: comeon. listen Google, if you were a vlogger, what would you think of you huh?
Google: hey, ya think i give a rat’s ass what they think of me?
janitor: yes i do
Google: think about this. when we get old, these bloggers’ll be influencing the country. now this is the thought that wakes me up in the middle of the night: when i get older, will they care about me.
janitor: i wouldn’t count on it
