That sounds like a brilliant watch! Perhaps they've just decided to go for a bigger audience with such articles as with the one I found, personally I'm no marketing genius but I always thought the more niche the better. For instance you never go into a shop and find "the magazine for everyone," it just doesn't work. Perhaps I'll visit again.

Like one of their friends obviously started hitting the gym and protein first, so the others followed suit because it's the thing to do. To the point that their whole lifestyle is based on not making a single choice of their own.

Do you want a wife and two kids because that's the template expectation or do you want a wife and two kids because you want to find a woman who keeps you captivated for a lifetime and then creates, with you, two lives that you two can shape and cherish and watch grow?
I feel like I'm going a bit too deep for a fashion forum now!

It's a troll article. Read his other articles. He lampoons a different niche every time; none of it is really specifically aimed at a whole group of people

It looks like they pulled the video as they sold the rights to HBO. It's available here via various mirrors if you want to see it. It's absolutely phenomenal; particularly the ending.
