Saturday Night Live Parodies The Gawkiness Of Google Glass

While many are gushing over Google Glass, it has become the butt of many jokes including Tumblrs, cartoons and now Saturday Night Live. On “Weekend Update,” cast-member Fred Armisen joined Set Meyers as the tech-blogging character Randall Meeks to show how Google Glass worked — or failed to work.

The skit played off of head motions, lack of surroundings and poor voice communication to show what could happen with Google Glass. While an egregious over-exaggeration of Glass, the skit did did have some salient moments when he was talking to himself, trying to communicate with Glass and, of course, the style and look of Glass. The full SNL skit is below (for US users only):
