A Facebook Update In Real Life
May 16, 2013

Any of you who are on Facebook will definitely appreciate this video, which is simply awesome.

If you haven't seen it yet, this short film imagines what it would be like if all the updates Facebook makes on its site... actually happened in real life.

When Nick gets home, a representative from Facebook is there to take him through the "exciting" changes they've made, even though he never asked for any of them.

The video is from Extremely Decent - a sketch comedy group based out of Los Angeles which says it "specializes in taking silly situations very seriously".

Their other videos include "The First Honest Cable Company," "Gollum vs. Smeagol Rap Battle," "A Canadian Mugging," and "Mind Readers."

You can check them out by clicking on the link above.
