Japanese Cartoon about Smartphone Addiction


A Japanese cartoon that tells about the dangers of smartphones has gained enormous popularity on the Internet. Its characters cannot imagine their lives without constant communication with mobile devices.


The video begins with the scene when a man, staring at the screen of a smartphone, crashes into a pole, accidentally tearing the clothes off a passing woman. Then, excessive enthusiasm over mobile gadgets leads to industrial accidents. After that, the action takes place in a doctor’s office, who sticks a syringe in the patient’s neck because of looking at the screen of his smartphone.

The video ends with a world catastrophe in which the scientist survives due to being enclosed in a sealed capsule at the time of a chemical experiment (which, in fact, leads to disaster). The scientist himself manages to send several messages via smartphone before he suffocates from lack of air.
