By now it's been chiseled into box office history that\u00a0We Are Your Friends, a feature-length film portraying Zac Efron as a struggling DJ immersed in EDM culture, had one of the worst opening weekends ever, selling about $1.8 million in tickets;\u00a0which, as a colleague\u00a0pointed out, means\u00a0about\u00a0180,000 people actually\u00a0saw it. So, who are these people? They're certainly not DJs (Deadmau5 tweeted that Friends' abysmal sales "restored my\u00a0faith in music") and they're definitely not critics, so they must be\u00a0millennials\u00a0\u2014\u00a0at least according to\u00a0Sony Pictures Entertainment\u00a0executives who predicted,\u00a0"EDM (electronic dance music). Wondering if there's an EDM angle somewhere with Spidey? His movements are beautiful, would be awesome with a killer DJ behind it." With Electric Zoo descending upon New York City's Randalls Island for Labor Day weekend,\u00a0SPIN\u00a0decided to go straight to what we suspected was the target demographic: fans of electronic dance music, especially those in the 20- to 30-year-old range.\u00a0Below, read our findings, which\u00a0have been condensed and edited for easier reading. Did you see Zac Efron's EDM movie,\u00a0We Are Your Friends?\u00a0 Trey, 19:\u00a0No, 'cause that s--t\u2019s whack.\u00a0It just looked kinda corny and kinda just, like, cheesy \u2014 not something I would want to watch. Jesus, 21:\u00a0Yes. It didn\u2019t really capture the scene like I was hoping that it would.\u00a0it didn\u2019t really show the love and the actual unity that\u2019s here in the festivals. It showed the drug side and all that stuff, usually the bad parts about it. I dunno, I thought it was kinda crappy but\u00a0I was doing nothing on the weekend. Crosby, 21:\u00a0It was all right \u2014 wasn\u2019t too bad.\u00a0I like how they were always just doing random s--t, miscellaneous stuff \u2014 going out, partying, and having a good time with \u00a0friends.\u00a0I think it could\u2019ve captured the scene a little bit more. Especially with the last scene of the movie, when he was making his track, he put a little too much in the beginning of it: all these random noises he\u2019s just randomly throwing into the actual song. Thomas,\u00a013 (not real name or age):\u00a0Uh, yeah, of course. I love Zac Efron. He\u2019s a very good looking man and... he\u2019s handsome. Clarissa, 20:\u00a0I don\u2019t really watch movies, honestly, so I feel like I\u2019m the wrong demographic that you\u2019re looking for. I would\u2019ve watched it because, like, why wouldn\u2019t I watch Emily Ratajkowski or Zac Efron? But I\u2019m not a movie person. Julia, 18: No. I heard about people talking about it and that it\u2019s really sh--ty, actually. I mean, it\u2019s a little too mainstream, you know? Just because this is getting popular they\u2019re trying to sell that s--t. So, I don\u2019t know, I don\u2019t want to watch it. I don\u2019t care if it\u2019s Zac Efron. Matt, 31: Uh, no. I did not see it but\u00a0I know exactly what you\u2019re talking about. It just looked like more of a white privileged kid trying to make it with his entourage. It looked like somebody who\u00a0was gonna make it regardless, 'cause he had something to fall back on. It was just his journey of trying to be a DJ. Joni, 19:\u00a0I did not until about two minutes ago when you mentioned it. Uh, I think Zac Efron has a beautiful face. Anonymous passerby:\u00a0He is sexy as f--k! https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/embed\/gZzAeYWXFpk Did you know that it had one of the worst performing opening weekends in box office history? Trey:\u00a0No, but I know it was at the same time as Straight Outta Compton and that was the best movie ever.\u00a0 Jesus:\u00a0Yeah. It probably came out at the wrong time. It didn\u2019t really capture the audience that it was going for\u00a0\u2014 like, this audience here. But, other than that, it could have been a lot better. Clarissa: Oh, seriously? That\u2019s kind of unfortunate. Anonymous passerby:\u00a0Worse than, uh, what was it called \u2014 that movie with Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck \u2014\u00a0Gigli? That's rough. Daniel, 29:\u00a0Why? That kind of makes me wonder. I\u2019m not big into this scene. It\u2019s been a while since I came to one of these, so I wouldn\u2019t be a good person to judge, but I\u2019d still check it out. Lauren, 22:\u00a0Well, I\u2019m not really surprised with it being Zac Efron. He hasn\u2019t really done much since High School Musical, right?\u00a0I imagine anybody would want to see it\u00a0since there's such a huge following, but I think that the people who listen to this type of music probably aren\u2019t fans of Zac Efron. Right? Chelsea, 27:\u00a0In history? Ever? Shut the front door. No f--king way. Oh my god, I feel bad for him. Well, I don\u2019t like to give that a lot of credit\u00a0because it could do really poorly in the box office and be a cult hit, you know what I mean? I never saw that s--t, I can\u2019t guarantee that it\u2019s gonna be good either. Joni:\u00a0I\u00a0think everyone should burn their TVs.\u00a0I enjoy a good movie theater every once and a while if you\u2019re pretty stoned. Dana:\u00a0Box office history? Worse than Ishtar? I heard it did poorly. I didn\u2019t know it was that bad.\u00a0Speaking as a marketing person, I wonder if they partnered with any of these festivals to promote it. I saw a preview online, I saw the trailer but I didn\u2019t see any real advertising for it. You\u2019d think they should be here handing out stuff, or, if they\u2019re releasing it at the end of festival season, they should have been at every single festival handing out promotional materials. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/embed\/tYtz2oxeO9M What kind of audience do you think the film was aiming for? Trey: Like, the 12-year-olds. The little kids that sneak into raves. Glendy:\u00a0If they were trying to ,\u00a0they should have just made a movie about Electric Zoo, or about what, I guess, our generation experiences when we come to this: It\u2019s just the environment, it\u2019s amazing. Just seeing everyone just go f--king crazy. Not just about some one kid that\u2019s trying to make it big. That\u2019s what it basically was. Matt:\u00a0I would say, more upper middle class, so. It's not possible to portray this scene on film because each year is different. There\u2019s no one type, because it keeps evolving from every generation, and every generation brings their own thing to the table. That\u2019s the greatest thing about it. Chelsea:\u00a0I don\u2019t know. I don't like the scene. I used to go to shows like this when I was younger\u00a0and\u00a0it just got really grody.\u00a0Drugs, man! It\u2019s not cool. I got into it late, but it was never like this. It seems like no one actually cares about their fellow human next to them,\u00a0whether it\u2019s by selling them drugs or it\u2019s by leaving them there when they\u2019re clearly incapacitated on the ground or whatever. We as a species are losing sight of the fact that we need to take care of each other. David, 23:\u00a0I love this music, but I don\u2019t really think I\u2019d want to see a movie necessarily the scene, unless it was a documentary-style thing about an artist or something like that.\u00a0I\u2019ve seen\u00a0A Year With Armin Van Buuren\u00a0that he put together, and that was online, so I could watch that. I really enjoyed that. It was cool but\u00a0I was at home just chilling out, just kind of put it on in the background. Not sure if I want to go to a theater to necessarily see something that\u2019s more low-key.\u00a0I will say my curiosity\u2019s piqued and and I\u2019ll watch it when it\u2019s on cable \u2014 or Netflix.
