SNL mocks Google Glass as a device for hapless dorks

SNL Google Glass Skit

When your product is being ridiculed on Saturday Night Live long before it actually releases, it’s safe to say that you’ve got a major potential image problem. This is the situation that Google now faces with its Google Glass headset after Saturday Night Live cast member Fred Armisen skewered Google’s new device on a Weekend Update segment. In the skit, Armisen struggled to get Glass to implement a Wi-Fi password and he jerked his head around awkwardly while sifting through assorted menus before getting busted for watching porn on Glass in public. The skit’s depiction of Glass users as hapless dorks is not a flattering one and is likely something that Google will have to work very hard to combat if it doesn’t want Glass to become the next Segway. A full video of the skit is posted below.
