Remy's latest music video "I Need a Hashtag!" destroys hashtag activism with a mock '80s riff and hilarious lyrics like these: "I won't care tomorrow, And I did not care yesterday, Is there anything I can do, To pretend that I care today? I need a hashtag! I need a hashtag today! Yeah I tweet to the world, '#Bringbackourgirls And Boko Haram will be like 'Ok!' I need a hashtag! I need a hashtag for today! To show that I care, When I really don't care, And it's just what I'm doing today Faking outrage."
