I hate it when they turn memes into ads. The whole concept of “firstworldproblems” was most likely created by a 10 year old using his iFunny app. Taking that to this is not creative… but hey this is for the charity!
Water Is Life video using the Twitter hashtag #Firstworldproblems to highlight the gap between the haves and the have nots is one of the most innovative charity campaigns to hit YouTube.
Lines such as a ‘I hate it when my phone charger won’t reach my bed’ and ‘I hate it when my house is so big I need two wireless routers’ are read out by Haitians, most of whom live on less than a dollar a day.
This video is a slap on my face every time I complain when I cannot find organic baby carrot available or every time I express my hate for PC at work. What else do we hate which are not real problems?

I hate it when other people in the office really uses loud ringtone with an awful annoying tune.

I hate that my favorite Krispe Kreme makes me fat and I have to stop eating chicken which is causing my pimples.
