An Australian woman posted this funny/sad Valentine’s Day video this February, after losing her boyfriend on the virtual tracks of an unspecified Oculus-compatible racing simulator. “This is VR Partner Life”, says Natalie Tran, the user behind the communitychannel account on YouTube. Her video depicts the tragicomic consequences of having a boyfriend who owns a virtual reality headset. Nom matter what she does -sings and dances in front of the guy-, his boyfriend is so absorbed in the virtual reality car that he just doesn’t notice the situation.
Ms Tran uploaded her video with the clear intention of sending out a warning message to everyone else, so they know “what happens when you buy your partner VR.”
The video has received over 2,200,000 views so far on YouTube.
