The whole “concept” “of” “time” in a pandemic — changes tone to sound exactly like I did after my first philosophy course in college — feels like a false premise. Days, weeks, whatever, it all blends into one.
And yet, the months keep passing.
If you’re being responsible, you’ve been in some sort of quarantine since February or March. And, weirdly, this deftly edited video of actress Olivia Colman’s charming 2019 Oscar’s speech does a beautiful job of summing up that time. Hell, it even shouts out Lady Gaga’s new album released in May.
Twitter user @MattEvuns posted the video on Sunday and it has quickly racked up more than 8,000 retweets and 23,000 likes.
A personal favorite from the video: I felt a deep connection with the “gahhhh” in June. Colman delivered the cheeky, heartwarming speech after she won Best Actress in 2019 for her role in The Favourite. If you want to revisit that amazing speech for what future months might look like, here it is in full.
I don’t want to speak for anyone here, but I’m betting August is going to have some “fart noise” vibes. We’ll just have to wait and see.
