He looked around and saw that everyone was mesmerized by the glowing lights in the palms of their hands.
“It’s time to avert my eyes from the glowing box for a while,” he said to no one in particular. “But how do I do that, when I work in this glowing media all day, making things for people to see while they’re staring?”
It came to him.
“Wake up!” he shouted into the camera for all his digital friends to see. “You’re being hypnotized! Mesmerized! Tell the box to sparkle someone else’s eyes! Don’t you see? Avert your eyes before it’s too late!”
Thousands of people clicked their agreement, and hundreds shared his message with their friends, and kept staring.
