There are some high quality videos on YouTube, and I mean high quality.
Emo: The Musical is one of those videos. Yes, it’s real. Yes, you have to see it to believe it.
In this Romeo and Juliet-ish short Ethan, an emo kid who hates everything, falls in love with a good Christian girl named Trinity, but his emo buds won’t let him live happily ever after.
Here’s the full synopsis:
“There is a strange holy war happening in the school as a group of Christian musicians and group of Emo boys battle for the music room. Caught amongst this are Ethan, an Emo, and good Christian girl Trinity, who are newly in love. Finding it hard enough to reconcile their own differences, they dread what will happen if their friends ever find out. As the war escalates and things turn serious, the star-crossed lovers are forced to make decisions that might cost them their friends, their place in school, and each other.”

This short hilariously captures the emo attitude with lyrics like “Sunshine, the worst possible way to start the morning / but it happens every miserable day.”
This short film is a true testament to everyone’s secret-favourite genre.
