Raised by the warm glow of the television, I would say that I have a healthy aptitude for the willing suspension of disbelief, but HBO Go is testing my freaking patience with its lousy interface.
WHY WON’T MY CURSOR DISAPPEAR WHILE I’M WATCHING HBO GO ON MY COMPUTER?!?!
No matter what I do when I am in fullscreen, my salient cursor reminds me that I’m looking at a screen instead of bearing witness to Nasir Khan‘s terrible/no good/very bad day while watching The Night Of.
Riz Ahmed is a talented actor, but he spends much of the HBO miniseries staring mournfully into the middle distance. I transformed these moments into an opportunity to illustrate how horrifingly distracting my omnipresent cursor has been in the course of my HBO Go-ing.
This video is what happens when I can’t let go of a grievance at 3 AM.
