Winklevoss Twins Appears In Pistachio Ad, Poke Fun At Mark Zuckerberg

Winkelvoss Brothers - Wonderful Pistachios CommercialCameron and Tyler Winklevoss, more commonly referred to as the Winklevoss Twins have gained a lot o f notoriety over the years as they continue to claim that Facebook was their idea. Now with their lawsuit behind them the Harvard grads and rowing team members  are poking fun at the entire situation, in a pistachio ad!

Cameron and Tyler appear in a “Wonderful Pistachios” commercial in which one of the brothers cracks a nut while the other asks if anyone else has ever cracked a nut in that manner, at which point they wonder out loud if anyone will try to steal their nut cracking method.

Obviously the commercial is a crack (no pun intended) at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg but I have to admit the fact that Facebook has entered the social consciousness so much that a pistachio company is using their name to sell product is a big solute to the world’s biggest social network.

Here’s the commercial:

The brother’s may be constantly complaining about their Facebook battle but they aren’t hurting, having received well over $100 million in Facebook shares.

What do you think about the Winklevoss commercial, is it a bitter jab at Facebook or just a bit of fun?
