Criticism of “I Gotta Feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas

I made a video criticizing the music video for the song “I Gotta Feeling” by “The Black Eyed Peas.”

Here is one additional comment which I did not include in my YouTube video:
I found the YouTube comments on the music video I criticize to be kinda sad. E.g.:

You spend your childhood wanting to grow up and spend your adulthood wishing you were a child again.

We were in the golden days without knowing it 😢

For lots of people, the song reminds them strongly of a particular time, and brings up strong emotions. But given the values promoted in the video, it’s bad if this song means much to you. The video promotes things like mindless “enjoyment” as an escape from ongoing stressful life problems. That sort of thing is a value of someone who doesn’t do much in their life.
