Google hates it when you say this, but Google Glass has a major image problem. People using the headset are routinely thrown out of public places including movie theaters and cafes, and the most common question many Glass users get asked by non-Glass wearers is whether they’re secretly filming everyone. In case you needed further proof that there’s a major stigma surrounding Glass, then you need to watch a new Daily Show clip in which correspondent Jason Jones absolutely rips into Google Glass users who are complaining that people are being mean to them when they see them wearing a computerized headset on their faces.

The most devastatingly funny moment comes when Jones asks the Glass users why they’d want to spend $1,500 on a headset when they could just look at their smartphones for information. One user replies that he likes Glass because it serves as “an interface between you and the real world.”

“Do you guys hear yourselves when you’re talking?” Jones asks. “‘Interface between you and the real world?’ Those are called ‘eyes.'”

The entire clip is worth watching and can be found below.
