We need to talk about Pokemon Go, people.
Like, we get it. We’re even all for it.
It’s free and it’s fun and it gets you outside and moving around, which is a lot more than we can say for plenty of other apps.
For those somehow unaware at this point, Pokemon Go uses your phone’s GPS and clock to actually detect where and when you are in the game.
It then makes Pokemon "appear" around you (on your phone screen, that is) so you can go and catch them.
The idea here is to encourage the user to move all around the real world in order to catch fake Pokemon, which is a bit confusing to those unfamiliar with the Pokemon universe.
But which is still pretty cool in concept.
Again: it’s an app that prompts people to get outside and exercise. Win, win.
But lines clearly needs to be drawn at some point.
Just ask the Florida weatherman featured in the video below.
He’s just trying to do his job, simply trying to tell viewers what to expect in the coming days, when a colleague wanders by, oblivious to her real-life surroundings because her eyes on locked on to her phone.
She just wants to find a few stupid Pokemon. Even during a live news report.
As if these poor people don’t have enough to deal with when spiders interrupt their segments.
Or when idiotic co-workers make sexist comments about sweaters.
Now they need to deal with adults on the lookout for Pokemon?!?
See what we mean below:
