Yeah girl, we gonna party tonight! But if you don’t post about it, did it really happen?..Partying activities are called into question if they are not posted on social media.
During a New Year’s Eve party that takes place at Drake’s mansion, Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) engages in conversation with Nadine (Gail Bean), who is tripping and doesn’t know what’s real or what’s imagined. As one does at parties, he launches into a cogent discussion of Bostrom’s simulation argument. It’s a philosophical and scientific hypothesis that in the future, technological advancements will be able to run large-scale computer simulations that could recreate the past and our ancestors, who are themselves conscious simulations. If this hypothesis is true, the reality that we are living could be one such simulation. In short, everything is an illusion. After seeing cheery Instagram photos and stories of her ex Earn (Donald Glover), she wants to one-up him to prove that she’s not at all heartbroken and that in fact, she’s living a better life than he is (or at least more than just pics of her daughter and chicken that are currently populating her stories).
