"Virtual Life" Lion King Spoof

This Duo Sang "Circle of Life" With Modern Lyrics, and It's Hilariously Real

Have you unplugged lately? Because you're not alone if your phone is the first thing you look at when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you see before falling asleep. YouTubers Dustin & Genevieve perfectly summed up this modern life in a single, hilarious song.

The viral music video for "Virtual Life," their take on The Lion King's "Circle of Life," comically points out the various tech-fueled flaws in today's society. And while lyrics like "There's my mama ranting 'bout Obama / in all caps, improper use of commas" will certainly make you chuckle, there's definitely a more serious message within the funny video. Consider the chorus:

It's the virtual life and it fools us all,
we compare and scroll so we'll measure up,
We will take selfies in the perfect lighting,
It's the virtual, the virtual life.

The entire surprisingly gorgeous rendition of the Disney song will make you laugh, especially the references to stalking college acquaintances on Instagram and taking an hour to snap the perfect social media photo. But as you watch, let it also serve as a reminder to put down the phone and live authentically every so often. It doesn't get much more #blessed than that!
