Mark Zuckerberg's hoodie comes clean
Some celebrities have a trademark article of clothing.
But heavy is the head that wears the hoodie.
“It's a little known fact but I have the ability to acquire small companies with the sweep of a sleeve,” tweeted @ZuckerbergsHood, a hilarious new Twitter parody account. “Just to clarify...I don't get what poke means either.”
Since launching the parody account, @ZuckerbergsHood has collected more than 300 followers and a shoutout from the Wall Street Journal.
Cicero—or should we say the hoodie—took some time to answer some questions about its success.
Daily Dot: What is it with these billionaires and their quirky styles?
“I think it's a matter of functionality. Imagine spending hours and hours trying to come up with a product that will change how billions of people will interact with each other every day. Albert Einstein had hair, Zuck has a hoodie.”
DD: Buzzfeed would give this a WTF, thoughts?
“I would call it more of a LOL”
DD: How important were you in the creation of Facebook?
“Essential. I've been literally there from the start...I've got his back.”
DD: Do you think there will ever be a day when Zuck will quit you?
“I hope not. I'd like to be thought of fondly like Mister Rogers’ cardigan, though I have heard I can find a lot of pink hoodies on Pinterest.”
DD: You wouldn't think a hoodie would have much to say but you've really made it work. How do you come up with this stuff?
“People say a lot of things about Mark behind his back...but I'm always listening...especially to the funny comments. I think it's important to realize that no matter if you're a billionaire or a bum you can still relate to the hoodie.”
DD: If there was one thing you'd like to tell Zuck, what would it be?
“Keep the net free Mark, keep it open and free for all.”
