Comedian Jimmy Rees has highlighted exactly what it means to be a millennial in a scathing and hilarious self-deprecating sketch.

The Aussie funny man started the video dressed in an eccentric leopard-print scarf and headband and acted as a checkout chick scanning ‘millennial essentials’.

They included having a sentimental attachment to Tamagotchies and Pokemon cards and being able to remember your primary school best friend’s home phone number.

He also listed butterfly hair clips, MSN Messenger, Myspace top eight friends, the Nokia 3210 – which came with the pre-loaded game snake, mini disc players and MMMBop hitmakers Hanson.

He also included the ‘constant resentment of having to adult today’ and saying the phrase ‘just look it up’.

Rees called out the old Nokia 3210s and the game 'snake' that made them popular with young people

He added: ‘Being mildly frustrated with the older generations thinking you are in your 20s when you are approaching 40.’

Using the hashtags blessed, yolo, rofl, lmao or adulting also qualifies you as a millennial, he explained. 

He said millennials are also attached to their phone or constantly worried about where it might be, worried the world might end if they step out without it and wondering about all the calls they are missing while at the same time being too afraid to actually speak on the phone.

While others just want to live a lavish lifestyle without the inconvenience of a day job.

He also highlighted the word ‘like’, before ‘scanning’ it a dozen times.

He repeated this multiple scanning action for avocado on toast, changing uni degrees, looking up basic life skills on Youtube, ribbons for coming last and Uber eats. 

He said millennials also call anyone older than them a ‘boomer’ and roll their eyes when that generation brag about owning home ‘by your age’. 

He then scanned ‘saving for a deposit on a $600,000 house for six years’ and ‘only to find out it is now worth $1.5million and saving for another six’. 

He then admitted that he is a millennial before adding a huge sense of entitlement to the ‘order’ and refusing to take the bags to the car.

‘Hope you didn’t get your feelings hurt,’ he said.

And it appeared to hit the mark with many millennials asking the comedian to ‘get out of their heads’.

‘I have never felt so seen in my life,’ one woman said.

‘Shoutout to all the millennials still using Hotmail,’ another said. 

While a third asked ‘why do we have to adult everyday?’

‘Everything is so on point, especially “Don’t call, text”,’ said another.
