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.

Enjoy.
