College Humor Reminds Us: Stop Saying Hollywood “Ruined” Your Childhood

I’ll admit it: In the past, I’ve bemoaned an unnecessary reboot or remake with some variation of the knee-jerk phrase no doubt familiar to all millennials, “It ruined my childhood.” Well, College Humor rightly wants us all to stop using the hyperbolic, unfounded expression—and it’s hard not to agree when it’s shown in as scathing and funny a light as it is here.

Lesson duly learned: If you start to think that Hollywood’s allegiance to Michael Bay, or 3-D and CGI, is “destroying” the memory of your younger days, it’s probably best to keep such thoughts to yourself.
