Post-Avatar depression hits thousands of fans [video] - Holy Kaw!

Post-Avatar depression hits thousands of fans [video]

Avatar may be one of the highest grossing films of all time, but it’s got a lot of fans feeling blue—pun intended.

CNN just came out with an extremely detailed report on the intense depression that Avatar is causing among a certain segment of fans. Psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser describes the fans as “lonely to begin with. They’re seeing Avatar, they’re lonely people, a lot of them don’t have a lot going on in their lives right now… The movie opened up a portal for them to express their depression.”

To simplify, people are depressed because their own lives don’t measure up to the fantasy, a phenomenon Kaiser attributes to the dissatisfaction one feels after seeing a romance movie if one happens to be unattached and dissatisfied.
