first three slides
Why does everyone look the same???????
Start filming in a bedroom to show how ordinary people (but mostly teenagers) start off their days trying to figure out what to wear. State how no matter who you are, your day probably begins in a bedroom of some sorts, and that your outfit selection will begin there.
OMG Yes I need these because they are exactly what all of my friends wear and I want to fit in and look like I stay tuned in to new styles!! (in a typical teenager voices)
Ew OMG gross I need to throw these clothes away, Ill just look weird in public because these aren't cool.
"But these outfit choices may be difficult to make for some people, because they might not have the right piece of clothing that society has deemed 'acceptable' to wear, since everyone wears the same thing." Its kind of like the 50s style of conformity/ suburbia America all over again, right?
As a teenager myself in the 21st century, I enjoy wearing many different outfits, but only until a little while ago did I realize that many other people enjoy to wear the same types of outfits as I do, outfits that I never would suppose they might wear.
(before this scene, there will be another scene with examples of different outfits (as well as brands) that I wear and ones that are very popular in the work today that people die to have). Here, a question will follow like "why has society deemed brands like Polo Ralph Lauren and Nike to be seen as 'superior' to ones like Southern Tide and Reebok, even though most brands have the same quality material.
Why is it that people must wear "the right" type of clothing and look identical to their friends or famous celebrities; is it because of social media that has the power to deem what is cool (no matter who ridiculous it may be) and what is not with a simple like button? Why must some companies by portrayed as the "right" ones to buy from and make all the money? "Well...after contemplating this question for a while, I may have an answer." (missing piece to the puzzle!)
Use graphs of statistics and studies here to explain how some brands' popularity have soared in recent years just based upon famous people advertising them/ people making new types of outfits (disregarding all levels of ridiculousness). Find scientific psychological studies that would help explain why some brands are more popular than others that in turn help feed the idea of conformity/ "fitting in" in American society.
