Recently, filmmaker Aaron Chervenak headed to a chapel in Las Vegas for a somewhat unconventional union. He “married” his smartphone to encourage others to think about just how attached they are to their phones, he says in the YouTube video. He compares having a phone to being in an intimate relationship: After all, many of us rely on technology around the clock, checking emails as soon as we wake up and scrolling through social media before falling asleep. Unsurprisingly, the marriage was not exactly legal, but we consider the “symbolic gesture” a success.
