Obviously nothing happened on the 21st of May. All that hype for nothing... So, I decided to research why nothing happened (apart from the obvious reason).
The idea is that 21st of May is just the Beginning of the End. After 5 months of Torment, the Earth will be destroyed. So, if you survived the 21st, contrary to popular belief it's bad for you, not good. It means that God did not save you and left you on Earth to suffer.
It looks like every couple of months a new theory/belief emerges about the end of the world. Do we invent and believe these stories in order to soften and ease our difficult, perhaps boring, lives? Do our lives suck so much?
In conclusion, these were two points I wanted to include in the video (nothing happening, again, and hope for ending the world). You can approach the short movie from a humorous viewpoint or a serious/informative viewpoint.
