So after much rumor-mongering, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently did a cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live. He had a brief bit during the opening monologue, in which he watched host Jesse Eisenberg (who portrayed Zuck in “The Social Network”) open the show. Eisenberg was then joined by Andy Samberg, doing his own Zuckerberg impression. A spastic Zuckerberg fidgeted backstage, complaining to SNL producer Lorne Michaels that HE was the real Mark Zuckerberg and that he’d “invented poking”.
Thus, this strip was born.
