Life Advice For Twentysomethings From Carrie, Hannah, & Our Other HBO Faves

On June 30, HBO NOW — the cable company's stand-alone streaming service, which launched in April — released a video clip containing exactly one minute and 20 seconds of wisdom. Specifically, knowledge that has been passed on from our favorite HBO personalities over the years, including characters like Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, Game of Throne's Tyrion Lannister, and Girl's Shoshanna Shapiro, who warns: "Bitches be cray." The video is part of HBO NOW's #StartingNOW campaign, which aims to prepare twentysomethings for all that lies ahead. (Conveniently, HBO NOW allows users to sign up without a cable subscription, because who has cable anymore?) The video's debut comes at a perfect time for recent graduates — especially those who are newly cut off from their folks, à la Hannah Horvath. There's even advice for viewers looking to purchase their first set of wheels: "If it drives, flies, floats — lease it," advises Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The company is also partnering with GIF-keyboard app PopKey to create character-advice GIFs that users can send to their friends. Now, we can remind our far-away besties that "It's not easy being drunk all the time" without having to nag them over the phone. Thanks, Tyrion. Watch the full clip below.
