The Video Website, created by Jimmy Kimmel Live intern Jeffrey Loveness, is a parody of The Social Network.

That was awesome. I work in social media and am really not looking forward to everyone who knows this asking me a bunch of stupid questions about Social Network when it comes out.

I've only been following The Social Network because 1) David Fincher is directing, and 2) Trent Reznor did the music. Mostly I don't care about Facebook (I'm not a member). But Fincher does great movies, and Trent does great music. I hope the movie is good.

(and having said that, the parody trailer is pretty funny)

And don't forget: script by Aaron Sorkin (West Wing, A Few Good Men)

Never in a million years would I guess David Fincher would direct an Aaron Sorkin script about...Facebook. Fucking Facebook. But that trailer for The Social Network is pretty damn watchable; I watched it two or three times. But that's probably because of that entrancing acapella version of Creep.

A melodrama about rich Ivy League kids getting richer and some getting not so much richer doesn't really push my buttons.
