Jimmy Kimmel Tried To Get Young People To Read Analog Clocks—And The Results Were Disastrous

If you were born between 1985 and today, there is a good chance you never learned how to read an analog clock. (You know, the round thing with hands?)

It used to be taught in schools, but these days, schools have bigger fish to fry, and analog clocks are slowly becoming a thing of the past.


But Jimmy Kimmel, ever out to show that people have really lost their marbles in this day and age, stopped young people on the street to try and make them read analog clocks.

The results were disastrous.

Only one person got remotely close.

Twitter is one giant sad face reaction.







One of the young women said her teachers at University of Texas, Arlington, would be so disappointed that she hadn't read a clock like that since elementary school.







Classrooms mostly use analog clocks still, even though students can't really read them.

Basic curriculum no longer includes teaching kids how to read analog clocks, leaving it up to parents.






The simple fact is, time has left analog clocks behind.

Frankly, with so much digital technology at our disposal, it's no longer important to be able to read analog clocks. Most everything is centralized on our phones, including alarms, kitchen timers, and anything else we may used analog for in the past

Onward and upward!
