Andy Samberg pretends to be Mark Zuckerberg at F8 keynote

The Facebook F8 conference kicked off with a particularly handsome-looking Mark Zuckerberg dressed in his trademark hoodie sweatshirt, pacing the stage and talking an exceptional amount of smack about Twitter and MySpace while also spending an inordinate amount of time praising his own abs.

He also mentioned new features like a button that would allow users to indicate which of your Faceboook friends weren't really friends and said the number of people using Facebook had grown so high that Facebook had stopped keeping track.

But that wasn't actually Mark Zuckerberg. Instead — that was Andy Samberg, doing his trademark Mark Zuckerberg impersonation.

After about five minutes, the real Zuckerberg took the stage and said that although Samberg was joking, a lot of the points he made were right.

The two guys hugged it out, and then Samberg left the stage and the presentation immediately got a lot more serious, and a bit more awkward.
