If you are looking for a good laugh, you might want to check out the latest viral video that has been making rounds on social media. It features TikToker @itsbrilew who just discovered that she can use a HD-TV as a computer monitor for her laptop. She apparently had no idea that this was possible, and was amazed by the quality and size of the screen.
The video has been viewed millions of times, and has received thousands of comments and reactions. Many of them are roasting the TikToker for being late to the party. It seems like everyone already knew that you can use an HD-TV as a monitor for your laptop or any other device via HDMI or VGA cable. Naturally the footage has people in stitches with laughter.
The most viral reaction was a tweet with a caption saying “You mean she discovered a HDMI cable ?”. The tweet has been viewed over 2 million times. Many people replied to the tweet with memes and gifs mocking the TikToker’s discovery. Some of them also shared their own stories of using HD-TVs as monitors for gaming, streaming, or working for many years. Others expressed how they like moments where people discover something that most people already knew.
Itsbrilew has not responded to the unexpected reactions yet, but she could definitely capitalize on the situation by speaking out. Is she offended or laughing along with everyone else? Hopefully the latter, because it is always good to learn new things and have fun with technology regardless of the pace at which it happens.
The old saying goes “better late than never”, so kudos to her friend for relaying this age old hack of using an HD-TV as a laptop monitor. The funny thing about that is that there are some people who do the opposite, and use PC monitor as a TV screen.
