Watch: Twitter’s Cheeky Infomercial to Recruit Job Applicants

In an industry full of earnest nerds, Twitter hopes workplace humor is a selling point. The company (which is earnest and nerdy too, of course) released a tongue-in-cheek recruiting video tonight.

At Twitter, The Future is You!” is described as an internal Hackweek project to “make the best/worst recruiting video of all time.” It does indeed manage to be both laugh-worthy and cringe-worthy. (Bonus: Watch Twitter CEO Dick Costolo try to keep a straight face.)

By the way, this isn’t Twitter’s first witty recruiting video, though one from two years ago was more “Rushmore” where this is more “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”
