"I Just Texted To Say I Love You" plays upon relationships in a technological world

(CBS) - Modern technology has the unique ability to bring people closer together over huge distances, while driving us apart when we're standing right next to each other. Texting, e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, Google+... these are more often the means of communication rather than just a simple, "Hi, how are you doing?"

Break.com has identified this paradox in an amusing new music parody entitled "I Just Texted to Say I Love You". Check it out.

The video stars Elliott Yamin from "American Idol" on vocals, along with Sarah Hyland from "Modern Family" and her real-life boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop from "High School Musical 3".

So is it just me or have situations like this created a modern equivalent to "if a tree falls in the forest" being replaced with "if you weren't tagged at a party in photos on Facebook, did you actually go?" And don't even get me started on the impact it can have on a person's love life... a clever parody by Break.com of a very modern (in)convenience.
