Social Media Mobile Micro Jobbing Baby Boomer, Xennial or Millennial: Generational Post goes viral!

The hilarious viral song makes fun at common stereotypes of the Millennial Generation – from coffee shops and man buns to Instagram selfies and an attitude of entitlement.


Micah Tyler’s “You’ve Gotta Love Millennials,” Parody has gone viral with over 50 Million hits on Facebook.

The parody, sung to the Beatle’s tune “Obladi-Oblada” is a look into the millennial generation, otherwise known as “Gen Y” and the negative attitudes and beliefs associated with them.

Typically Gen Y is categorised as being addicted to technology, lazy and unrealistic and this parody is a shout out to that.

“There he sits in your local coffee shop, sporting a man bun and facial hair, somehow he believes that although he has no job, that by his thirties he will be a millionaire,” he sings.

“She posts lots of selfies on her Instagram with a quote that’s inspirational, hopes to change the world while wearing yoga pants, armed with her dreams and knowledge of essential oils.”

While the song seems to make fun of the younger generation, Micah Tyler is actually a millennial himself and is looking to break the attitude.

“My hope is that future generations will be able to look at how we overcame our differences and fought as hard as we could to break down the barriers created by negative attitude, easy excuses and pointing fingers,” Tyler explained.

Along with this parody, Micah Tyler has also just released a brand new single of his own titled “Never Been A Moment.”
