‘Social Network’ Teaser Trailer Has Your Attention

It seems so long ago that people were laughing about the idea of a Facebook movie. Then David Fincher signed on. Then Aaron Sorkin signed on. Then things didn’t seem so funny anymore. It’s a film that’s been almost over-exposed even before launching its first trailer, but that moment has arrived, and it’s time to see truly how much over-exposure this bad boy can get.

Be sure to share it with your friends. Or become ours. Or “like” us, or whatever it is now.

Actually, just hit us up on Friendster.

It’s great to see the “teaser” part of the phrase “teaser trailer” mean something again. The trend of giving away entire films in trailers has spilled over into making most teasers feel like full-fledged, plot-ruining trailers as of late, and here is a great example of something that grabs attention with simplicity.

And the line, “If you guys were the inventors of Facebook, you’d have invented Facebook,” is a derivative of what I saw almost daily in my never-ending legal struggle against the guy who’s suing me over the invention of The Peanut Butter Bacon Sandwich.

The bottom line: it’s a strong teaser, and I’m going to go write about it on my xanga right away!

Enthusiasm.

Thanks, Mashable.
