Zuckerberg Evangelizes Facebook Home In New Video Ad, Actually Entertaining

Facebook Home is now available on select handsets and is preloaded on the HTC First (available from AT&T), and Facebook is running a series of ads promoting the deep integration app launcher UI skin...thing. The latest ad shows Mark Zuckerberg giving his team a (surprisingly boring) “Atta boy, you did it” speech at Facebook headquarters, and apparently the actors in the ad are the actual team members that built Facebook Home.

At least one of the team members would rather dink around on Facebook than listen to Zuck drone on describing Home’s features, so he’s toying with his phone instead of listening. Hijinks ensue. Warning: screaming goat alert.

You have to hand it to Zuck: He can poke fun at himself (at least, on his own terms), and the ad is kind of spot on about how people instinctively and obsessively play with their phones when there’s even a moment of boredom.

Have you tried out Facebook Home yet? What are your impressions so far?
