Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss star in an ad for pistachios. The twins, you may recall, had been trying to sue Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg out of his casual jeans, ironic t-shirt and Adidas sandals for quite some time, claiming that he stole their idea. Someone made a movie about it!

And where there’s movies, there’s TV. And where there’s TV, there’s commercials. And where there’s commercials, there’s pistachios. It’s the entertainment industry food chain, believe you me. Now we have documented proof that the movie industry, TV industry and pistachio industry are all in cahoots! Witness the above video or read the below text. Or both, your call.

The pistachio ad:

– One Winklevoss cracks a pistachio between his fingers.

– The other Winklevoss says, “Hey, that’s a good idea.”

– The first Winklevoss says, “What?”

– The other Winklevoss says, “Cracking it like that. Could be huge.”

– The first Winklevoss says, “Think someone will steal it?”

– The announcer says, “The Winklevoss twins…”

– The Winklevoss twins interject, “Who’d do that?”

– The announcer finishes, “…do it cautiously.”

If Mark Zuckerberg starts cracking pistachios between his fingers, he’s in big trouble. If he’s always cracked pistachios that way, he’d be wise to stop just to avoid potential legal headaches. Whatever he does, he should NOT try to patent anything related to pistachios. Patent litigation in the tech industry has reached a fever pitch lately. He’d be wise to stay away from shell-based nuts altogether, if you really think about it. Maybe stick to hunting.
