Google gets Social Network parody

first_imgThe Social Network was a fine movie. Based on the story of CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the invention of Facebook, the film won three Academy Awards this year. However, the movie has been parodied beyond belief. The recipe for a good The Social Network parody is simple: Play the Scala version of Radiohead’s “Creep,” show actors being very dramatic and serious, even if the subject matter is not, and voila, you have a hilarious spoof. The latest mockery features none other than the most buzzed about Facebook competitor: Google+.Comedy group I Wear Your Shirt posted a YouTube video that shows “the nerdy enthusiasm of the early adopters,” to the “extreme confusion” of everyone else. It makes fun of the insanity that was, and still is, the massive amount of people looking for invites. It also pokes at Google+’s large male population. There are more women part of the site now, but it’s still largely male dominated.Google+, which is “new…er than Facebook” already has over 10 million users. However, as you may remember from when it first launched two weeks ago, the site only sent initial invites to members of the tech media, or, as the video says “just to the nerdiest people.”Though people are still getting the hang of Google+ and what it is exactly, the video pokes fun at the fact that not many people actually know what it is, but still want to be a part of it. “We don’t know that it can be different from Facebook, we don’t’ know that it will be better than Facebook,” Mark Shmuckerberg said in the video. “We just know that it’s cool to video conference with 10 strangers while we work.”Check out the video below and let us know what you think.last_img read more
