Yesterday I posted the following Study Abroad Tweet of the Day focusing on the movie "Taken" and the study abroad experience:
"Of course Grandma brings up the movie "Taken" while @xxxxxx is discussion study abroad. #FamilyReunionAdventures pt.2" [Twitter handle removed by me for confidentiality]
I followed up that post with a brief mention that I have never seen the movie "Taken" but that I see many tweets about the movie having a negative connection to study abroad. This was especially true tonight as I searched for today's Study Abroad Tweet of the Day as I found no less than eight out of about one hundred fifty tweets focusing on study abroad and Taken so I'm sharing those tweets below:
"my dad won't let me study abroad because of the movie taken."
"I haven't seen the movie Taken. And I don't think I should since I'm determined to study abroad..."
"Watching Taken with my fam when my sister's leaving to study abroad Tuesday....."
"when your parents use Taken as an excuse to not letting you study abroad<<< #really #itsjustamovie"
"Decided not to study abroad after watching taken #nightmares#seeyaneverrome"
"If my Mom knew about the movie "Taken", she would never let mestudy abroad. #terrifying #whereisliamneesonwhenyouneedhim"
"Watching Taken as my parents scare me about study abroad in August #GREAT
"Great. Taken 2 is coming out the week I have to submit my studyabroad application. #secondguesses"
I of course have to see the movie now and most likely Taken 2. Have you seen the movie?
