Looking for answers? YEEE HAAAW! Well you’ve come to the wrong place, pardner! Didn’t you see the question mark in the headline? That means we don’t know, and even with our non-existent internet ethics we felt bad pretendin’. But that don’t mean we can’t still have fun speculatin’! Yeeee haw, now who wants to get shot in the dark? (*fires pistols in air*)
The Social Network has famously been called a “character assassination” of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who dismissed the film as a fiction he had no interest in seeing. He also removed Aaron Sorkin’s West Wing from his list of favorite shows on Facebook after he heard Sorkin had written The Social Network, so despite his official detached stance, there were clearly some hurt feelings. Which is why it’s surprising that according to a few Twitterers, Zuckerberg was spotted at a screening of The Social Network last night in Seattle. A guy wearing a suit jacket and blue shirt who looked like Zuckerberg was spotted, anyway. One of the spotters was DVDTalk/Boxoffice.com‘s Tyler Foster, who tells me:
Walked out & my friend said “That’s Mark Zuckerberg” and a guy who looked just like him was taking a photo w/some girl. Can’t say I spoke to him, but…it looked like Mark Zuckerberg. It would help if someone could place him in Seattle, at least.
Yes, yes it would. The only thing I found about him being in Seattle is from 2007. Haha, good story, Vince. And so, I leave you with the words of Mitch Hedberg, “I got to smoke fake pot with Peter Frampton. That’s a cool story. It’s as cool as smoking real pot with a guy who looks like Peter Frampton… I’ve done that way more.”
WAG THE DOG-ISH UPDATE: After I posted this, Tyler wrote: “Publicist called. Said studio contacted her and was vehement Zuckerberg would never wear a suit. Both she and I hypothesized that if that were true, it’d make the perfect disguise. She said they didn’t have an answer.”
