Snapchat Premieres Mini Series

‘Literally Can’t Even’

dailydot.com

Last week Snapchat rolled out a huge new update and unveiled their new ‘Discover’ feature. So far, Discover has been a hit garnering quite a bit of praise across the board. It’s a well-polished and interesting idea and also a step in the right direction to make Snapchat a multimedia hub.

But Snapchat weren’t quite satisfied with just the new Discover feature, they've also rolled out their own scripted series which you can view on your Snapchat app. The series is called ‘Literally Can’t Even’.

No I’m not joking. It’s actually called that. You don’t believe me? Take a look on your Snapchat when the next one comes out. It's tragic. 

The series stars Sasha Spielberg and Emily Goldwyn. Spielberg and Goldwyn who are daughters of Steven Spielberg and John Goldwyn also wrote the series.
The series follows their lives. They play a pair of friends who go through all your typical teenage drama. It almost wants to be 90210, The OC with a touch of New Girl to boot. I mean, that makes it sound quite good if you like that sort of thing, right? Wrong.

It’s diabolically bad. Just about every moment of it had me wincing. They ‘literally can’t even’ write, direct, or act.  I have absolutely no idea how this was deemed worthy for release. I don't understand why Snapchat would want to be associated with content that is as amateurish as this, it's just damaging for the brand. 

Thankfully, like all your other snaps the video is only available for 24 hours after it’s been released. So if you avoided checking your Snapchat for a day you were likely spared of witnessing ‘Literally Can’t Even.’

Here’s how some people reacted to the new show on social media. They feel about the same that I do, apparently.


This isn't the only Snapchat series in the making. There’s another series focusing around Superheroes called ‘SnapperHero’ which is expected to debut in the coming weeks. But then again, if ‘Literally Can’t Even’ is the mark of quality we can expect from Snapchat series I don’t think it will be worth our time.

I’d avoid this series with a very wide berth.

This didn't need to happen, Snapchat. You were doing so well before this. Let’s just not release this anymore, yeah? If you do we’ll all pretend that ‘Literally Can’t Even’ never even existed. It’s for the best.
