The American Dream. Three words repeated to us ad nauseam from our politicians, our most cherished celebrities, and our loved ones. But what IS the American Dream? What about this concept has become so engrained in our culture that we simply can't escape it?
For people like William J. Clinton, the American dream represents "new businesses, well-paying jobs, and American leadership in new industries" while for others like Whoopi Goldberg the American Dream is the ability to "come from anywhere and be anything you want."
It's hard to sum up a concept so powerful — and one with such a loaded history — fairly. But to me? Well, I believe the American Dream is a bunch of rando people on the internet taking a selfie through a toilet paper tube so they look like the moon.
1.I mean, come on. This is pretty funny.
2.He looks like the moon!
3.So does this dude!
4.I want to live in a world where anyone - ANYWHERE - can look like the moon whenever they want.
5.Even dogs. EVEN DOGS!
6.Look at this dude. He looks like ------ wait for it ------- THE MOON!
7.All you need is one toilet paper tube, one camera, and your big ol' handsome mug:
8.This is what freedom looks like.
9.This is the America I want to live in. An America where no matter your race, your class, your background, you can look like the moon.
10.Even if you're a bird. ESPECIALLY if you're a bird.
11.It's time we come together as a nation over the one thing that can truly unite us - lookin' like the moon.
12.Take that selfie and end the awful divisions in our country.
