Doom Laden Compilation Video Reflects On The Wild Ride Of The Past Few Weeks

If the news is anything to go by, things are not going particularly well for this planet. Some days, it seems like the human race is careering from one disaster to the next with little idea how to fix things.

When things seem this cheerful, it probably doesn't help to encourage our doomscrolling — but that's just what the paradoxically named @holidayvibestiktok has done. A viral video posted to the account pointed out all the apoplectic events that had happened recently, from the collapse of a condo building in Miami to the Gulf Of Mexico fire

With its gloomy soundtrack and even gloomier outlook, some people took it as a sign that Doomsday was around the corner. Others, though, were more skeptical and pointed out that bad things happen all the time and the TikTok was hyperfocusing on a tiny section of them. Regardless of this difference of opinion, the video makes for sobering viewing. In the eternal words of Horse_ebooks, everything happens so much

doom, end of days, fire, flood, fireworks, tiktok, omg, natural disasters, damn

All The Apoplectically Ridiculous Reactions To The Ocean Being On Fire

As anyone who is not living under a rock is aware, this weekend saw part of the Gulf of Mexico set on fire. An underwater gas leak engulfed part of a pipeline in flames, taking more than five hours to put out and providing the world with the startling image of two opposing compounds at war with one another.

Naturally, the internet decided that such an eye-catchingly dystopian event was the ideal springboard for a smorgasbord memes of varying degrees of derangement. After all, what use is the planet burning if you can't get a few likes out of it? 

While the blaze is now reportedly under control, the footage remains an unsettling reminder of how much modern society has managed to screw up the environment, as well as a touchstone for anybody looking for their five minutes of Twitter fame. As a wise dog in a hat once said, this is fine.
