4. In original universe, all your favorite celebrities are still alive.
Everyone remembers 2016. It was the year several pop and rock stars died, and since then it’s been an endless list of icons and legends just marching into the grave. In the original universe, they shone on forever, but instead in this darkest timeline, they go gently into the night. Our only solace is that they have become the stars that shine in the sky.
3. In original universe, all the pop culture movies are good.
Geeks, nerds and dorks everywhere tear their hair out over crappy DC movies, disappointing remakes and boring video game adaptations. But in the original universe, Hollywood executives actually understand what makes comic books, cartoons and video games great. Unfortunately, in this darkest timeline, cynicism has ground our nerd movie hopes into the dust.
2. In original universe, our showbiz companies live in harmony.
It’s the twenty first century, yet Filipino showbiz companies still act like it’s the 1940s where rivalries run deep, talents are contractually bound to one network and the fans are encouraged to maintain cultish loyalty. But on the other side of the reality fracture, there is a universe where the stars move freely and our hearts and families are all together.
1. In original universe, there is no fake news, only news
Fake news, satire news, biased news. With multiple 24 hour cable news networks, tens of thousands of websites devoted to news and of course, social media, it’s become impossible to determine what’s real and what’s not, what’s biased and what’s not. But in that other universe, people don’t just share what they agree with, everyone understands satire and your crazy friends check their facts.
