Facebook’s New Phone Commercial Is Even Weirder Than the Last

GoatZuckerbergYou gotta give Facebook credit for being willing to get weird.

Latest example: The social giant’s new commercial for Facebook Home, the brand new software that turns your plain ol’ Android phone into a Facebook phone.

It features a daydreaming employee messing around on the new device, and of course has CEO Mark Zuckerberg center-stage. But the real star of the strange commercial is a screaming goat, who yells in the face of an excited Zuckerberg talking to the troops on Facebook Home’s launch day.

Like I said. Weird.

The company first delved into strange territory last year with “Chairs,” the commercial it released when it hit the billion-user mark. It was a bit of a head-scratcher.

This one for Facebook Home is pretty cute, though, however strange it may be.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
