Country Music video or big-think article–they’re both fun, and both saying more or less the same thing (must be something in the water–or the culture). You can watch Brad Paisley’s Online, or you can read Christine Rosen’s Virtual Friendship and the new Narcissism. Granted, Rosen’s article will take a bit longer to get through than the video. On the other hand, the black-and-white specimen of this perspective on the culture may actually have more playful moments than the video.
