8 Pop Culture Communication Failures in Honor of GChat Being Down

By Julia Emmanuele, Hollywood Staff

The Internet has gifted the world with many wonderful things: quizzes that determine which pizza topping best represents your personality, an easy way to find out what Tom Hiddleston is up to, memes, and endless cat videos, just to name a few. But of all the Internet's gifts, the greatest is the ability to instantly communicate with people all around the world: GChat. But on Monday morning, the unthinkable happened. GChat crashed for several hours, resulting in the communication of users all over the world being temporarily suspended. There was no way to communicate with our bosses and co-workers, no way to procrastinate by talking with our friends, no way of reminding our family members to defrost tonight's dinner. How would we function? How would we fill this silence? Well, we decided to pass the time by taking a look at some of the most popular instances of communication failure in movies and television in order to put the loss of GChat in perspective.
