Facebook’s Road Show Kicks Off Electronically With Zuckerberg in a T-Shirt (Video)

Nope, no tie here.

In an electronic version of the company’s road show just posted on the Web, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg appears in something he’s more comfortable with: Jeans and a T-shirt.

The high-quality video production has five sections, giving potential investors in its upcoming initial public offering a snapshot of the company’s business, ranging from current products to finances and its future.

The video uses a lot of soft lighting to make Zuckerberg look well-rested and bright-eyed, and plays Enya-like music in the background to tug at your heart strings as they blabber on about how Facebook makes just about anything more social and has become a central part of our lives.

All Things D’s Kara Swisher previously reported that the company’s road show was expected to start in earnest as soon as next week, but was a little more fuzzy on certain details, like Zuckerberg’s choice of outfits.
