The Internship: Google Gets a 2-hour Recruiting Video

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 5 comments

Yes, if you are a recruiter at IBM, Yahoo or Microsoft, it is ok show a little envy.

In a circumstance that is really only possible in Hollywood, Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson score an internship at a company that many - at least those of us who lived through the dotcom boom and bust - perceive to be synonymous with Internet stardom - Google.

The film appears to be heavily drawing from the clichés the general population imagines Google to look like: Self-driving cars in front of a monstrous headquarter, food, and an organization that is flooded with computer geniuses in their mid-20s displaying awkward humor.

So, can "The Internship" be funny? I don't know. The movie won't be released until summer, but the trailer suggests that Google is mainstream enough to be the anchor for a movie. Some may scratch their head and wonder why Google was picked over Facebook.

    Facebook already had its movie with "Social Network." Why make a second one for a company main existence is to create and feed on a egocentric society.

    A movie was already done about Facebook (Not facebook itself but Mark) and it was horrible. And I would much rather watch a movie about Google than Facebook.

    As for the movie itself, I think it may be O.K. I am going to see it:)
