2020 is turning out to be the Worst Year.
It’s no surprise that 2020 is turning out to be the worst year for the whole world and also that people have started comparing this year with a random sci-fi TV series on Netflix or with some sort of strange and anti-utopian book for a few months now.
The year was first celebrated in Australia where 18.626 million hectares were burnt across all the states and territories. Australia faced a devastating start to its fire season in later 2019, and things swiftly got worse before rains helped contain many of the worst fires in February 2020.
Then we came across the COVID-19, which is still ruining the whole world. Many people lost their lives, some are on the verge of dying because of no food and shelter and others have lost their jobs and I guess there’s nothing much to explain as you guys are already familiar with the situation. And now America is still struggling with COVID-19 and also losing control as people are marching on the street to protest for the killing of George Floyd.
If we weren’t living it, we would have thought it as a screenplay for the next great movie. But to be honest and real, this is the harsh reality we all are facing now and we’re halfway through it.
Recently the makers of the Netflix app realized the current situation and world’s recent events and compared it with its series named Black Mirror. The makers of the series just used a haunting ad to show that the show’s 6 season is in fact just the reality.
Creator of the show Black Mirror – Charlie Brook announced that season 6 of the show would be postponed and it broke the hearts of the fans worldwide.
In one of the interviews, he said – “At the moment, I don’t know what stomach would be there for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on any of those Black Mirror Episodes.
Also, he said, “I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh”.
Instead of the show being on hold, people started pointing out that 2020 looked a lot like the anti-utopian shows.
Netflix took the advantage of the concept, by teaming up with a Madrid- based company to develop a haunting ad for the show’s 6th season, starting with the tag line, ” Live now, everywhere”.
Why is it taking so long?
Here’s what people has been saying for the Netflix ad.
