It’s time to look at one of our previous videos once again, and since this video has recently gotten 1 million views, we will be doing a recap on Our Parents vs Parents We’ll Be! This is also one of the first videos that we shot ever since we’ve moved into our current office!
Well, love your parents or not, we are definitely going to be very different from our own parents when we have our own kids. So let’s have a look at the differences!
Aurelia brings her boyfriend back to meet her parents. Pretty standard. Except…
Her parents are a little scary. With the knives, and that scar on the Dad’s face, it’s no wonder that Guo Liang is scared, or just very hungry.
And as if he’s not terrified enough, the parents bring out the goods.
And needless to say, Guo Liang makes his escape, before he’s served on a plate.
Parents that we will be though, seem to be party animals.
Putting aside the fact that Guo Liang seems to have a preference for blondes be it in the past or future, at least there’s food on the plates this time round.
After tons of innuendos, the parents finally get down to the topic. And of course, there is no way you would admit to it right? Right?
And that’s when we realise that parents are the same after all
Moving on, we compare the difference between our conservative parents, and the liberal parents that we will be.
We are welcomed to the sight of Aurelia trying to save a cat at a stairs landing, while wearing a skirt. And of course, her mother passes by and witnesses this.
After shouting at her daughter that she’s showing her meow to everyone, definitely attracting the attention of anyone who is in the vicinity to look at the meow, the mother gives up after scolding Aurelia.
Till this date, the whereabouts of the cat is still not known.
And we then see the liberal side of things.
Just the sharing of clothes, no big deal. Not as if the Dad is asking to wear his underwear. And not as if the Dad is showing him…
Maybe being too liberal isn’t a good thing after all.
Following which, we explore a trope, a mother painstakingly taking care of the house while her husband is out working, and her kids are at school.
And her daughter returns home, and knows that it’s not easy for her mother, and she massages her mother’s shoulders.
And how will we take care of our children in the future you ask?
Apparently, our children in the future sleeps to pop music and hip hop.
And with regards to asking for permission, we sure didn’t have an easy time with that with our parents.
And according to our parents’ logic, anything and everything may happen once you’re out of the house, but nothing will happen if you’re in your house.
But when it comes to our turn as parents, we are as easy as it gets.
This scene opens up to a tragedy, with a couple mourning in front of a body on the bed, and they are forced to make the call.
After making the call, we find out that their son isn’t dead after all!
And then we have a look at how our parents used to discipline us.
Oh, we forgot to mention, our parents used to be able to fly.
Sad to say, we did not inherit their ability to fly, but we will have way more power over our kids in the future!
In the event our kids get disobedient, and start to have a staring showdown with you…
Our dear parents-to-be, do not fret, for you have the power to…
Your kids will hate you for that whole night, but it’s worth it. Though the issue is, we are probably as reliant on the WiFi as they are, so…
Well, we’ve come to the end of this article, and I guess the eventual message that this video is trying to portray is that for most parents out there, be it the conservative, overprotective and strict ones, or the liberal, lenient, cool modern ones, they still love their kids very much, and are trying to do what they think is right for their kids. As kids, we might not like it, but try to understand the rationale behind their actions, and communicate with your parents properly if there are things you wish to change.
There is actually still one last comparison between our parents, and parents we will be. However, it wouldn’t be fun if I were to reveal those scenes as well. So for those who have forgotten what happened in the video, and for those who have yet to watch it, go watch the video! Till next time!
