A good viral video is like a short story. When an underdog rises to the occasion, takes on the world, and comes out on top — there’s just nothing like it.
Unfortunately, this is not one of those videos. But it’s still inspiring, I guess.
In this video, three adorable little Ethiopian girls break all the rules and conventions imposed on them, pick up a couple guitars and, well, honestly kinda blow it. Like seriously, it was pretty bad.
But that’s not the point.
In a world where so many online videos end in people failing or getting hurt for laughs, it’s great to see videos where the underdogs come out on top. I assume, I don’t know. I haven’t seen many videos like that recently and this certainly wasn’t one of them.
Still though, three little Ethopian girls, shirking all notion of being powerless, to get up on stage, and honestly kinda trash a classic Metallica tune? It is somewhat inspiring even if it’s a little misguided (why not start with blitzkrieg bop if you clearly can’t play your instruments?).
Either way, these young women living in a world that constantly and systematically devalues them have shown the courage to create a band which … let’s not kid ourselves, should probably stick to originals. But regardless of all that, I’m still somewhat inspired. I guess.
Inspire the world in your new Hard Times shirt!
