    The new Facebook Home app is an interesting example of a polarizing idea. On the one hand, many folks make sound arguments against the new "launcher app" from the social networking giant. On the flip-side, a near equal number of people think it's a slick new way for Facebook to cement itself in the mobile world, and could actually even help Android further.

    Whether you think Facebook Home will be a colossal flop or a smart new product from the company, we can all appreciate a bit of humor in our lives. Here's a commercial for the new Facebook Home starring "The Zuck" himself, and if you've ever sat through a boring corporate meeting, you will likely get a chuckle out of this. Enjoy!

    I think it's interesting that their marketing of this basically paints constant interruptions in the "here and now" in a positive light. I'd love to see someone parody the same idea on the negative! :tongue:
