Joining the digital detox bandwagon, this sweet clip encourages people to put down their screens and take a look at all the natural nondigital beauty there is to see.
If you'd like to sing along, please see the lyrics below: 

Every day I sit right there
Sit and stare and check my Facebook, email, Instagram
Chatting with my friends and making plans.
But on days with lots of sun
I say goodbye to everyone online
And say hello, cuz I know there's a place where all the

Bees are always buzzing 'bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don't miss my little screen, because

The sky won't need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:
You should really take a walk on this lovely 
sunny day.

In the park I reconnect
Take some time to self-reflect
Yo, this Snapchat is going to be cray!
No hashtag selfie, put that thing away.

The pigeons make it feel like home
Follow me and we can can roam 
Across the grass and see
That now we're running faster than 4G!

On the playground there's a million games to play.
We don't need a fancy tablet with a 
retina display.

Because...

The Bees are always buzzing 'bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don't miss my little screen, because
The sky won't need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:
You should really take a walk on this lovely 
sunny day.

Just look up and there will be
Bright blue skies, don't need a
Weather app to tell you that.
Subscription to this cloud is free.

Bees are always buzzing 'bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don't miss my little screen, because
The sky won't need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:

You should really take a walk on this lovely
sunny day.
