‘First World Problems’ PSA Will Make You Laugh, Think

Subscribe to TheFW on

“First World Problems” are meant to be a joke. The internet meme mocks the way the planet’s more privileged citizens will complain about things many people would consider luxuries.

But if all you know is the First World, wouldn’t these “problems” be real to you? In a parody video from Ryan Higa, First World Problems — or FWP — finally get treated with the seriousness they deserve.

Sure, it sounds funny to hear someone complain about the iPhone 5 being too big for his skinny jeans. But what if that was your iPhone 5? What if those were your skinny jeans?

Luckily there is a cure for FWP. As you can see, the remedies are pretty harsh. But sometimes it takes the toughest of love to get one out of the dreaded First World-induced funk.
