‘Til deadspot do us part.
Tila ito ang naging wedding vow ni 34-year-old Aaron Chervenak nang pakasalan nito ang kaniyang Iphone sa isang kakatuwang seremonyas sa Las Vegas.
“‘If we’re gonna be honest with ourselves, we connect with our phones on so many emotional levels,’ ani Chervenak sa isang YouTube video nito “‘We look to it for solace, to calm us down, to put us to sleep, to ease our minds, and to me, that’s also what a relationship is about.’
Naisipang pakasalan ni Chervenak ang kaniyang cellphone nang maisip nito na sa naturang gadget niya lamang naranasan ang pinaka-mahabang pakikipag-relasyon.
“So in a sense my smartphone has been my longest relationship,” Ani Chervenak. “That’s why I decided to see what it was like to actually marry a phone.”
Laking tuwa ni Chervenak nang pumayag ang isang Las Vegas chapel sa kaniyang kagustuhan na ikasal siya sa kanilang mobile phone.
“It’s not yet legal to marry smartphones. But what I hope my wedding will do is to somehow act as a symbolic gesture to show how precious our phones are becoming in our daily lives, and hopefully get others to ask that same questions of themselves and their relationships with their phones,” dagdag ni Chervenak.
Samantala marami naman ang hindi pumabor sa desisyon ni Chervenak base sa reaksyon ng mga YouTube viewers nito.
“In 18 months he’ll upgrade,’ ani isang YouTube user. ‘I’m glad this idiot won’t reproduce. Thank you, Apple.”
