Brand new to RTÉ Player, First World Problems is brought to you by 2FM Presenter, Chris Greene and self confessed ‘content messer’ Peter Ganley as they take a swipe at traditional media, social media and the ungrateful gremlins who consume it. Available to watch exclusively on RTÉ Player, get a ‘tongue in cheek’ take on news reports from around the world, soul destroying consumer ads, awe-inducing viral videos and a streaming pile of content in the pilot episode of First World Problems.
Welcome to First World Problems as Peter and Chris review a ‘Streaming Pile of Content’ in the shape of a TV show with a 1970’s solution to a failing marriage. A full on partner swap. That’s right! No trips to the local Accord counsellor here, my friend! In ‘Waiting In Line To Die’, the droll hosts take a look at the saccharine sweet world of advertising wondering where all of this consumerisation is heading while being gifted a brand new ‘comfy casual’ word just in time for summer #athleisure. Take a sideways look at news reports on the upcoming Royal Wedding and share in their disdain for that poor bear being made perform at a football match in Russia.
