Viral Video: Everything Is Amazing and Nobody Is Happy

Here’s a video of comic Louis CK, in an appearance with television talk show host Conan O’Brien, which was flagged to me by Tech N’ Marketing blogger Hillel Fuld as the all-time funniest.

Well said, especially with all the various controversies around Apple (AAPL), Facebook and more.
