Video Spoof Likens Facebook Timeline To Genital Herpes

I 'LOL'ed'...but because the FB timeline is about equivalent to genital herpes...the video is hilarious you have to watch it! happy.gif
The wake of the Facebook IPO has left the social network ripe for criticism. Mashable reports that a spoof of the now-infamous "timeline" update takes a humorous jab at Facebook's imposition of Timeline-only profiles.

The short, called "I Have Timeline," is a riff on a commercial for the drug Valtrex (h/t Laughing Squid), in which people talk about living with genital herpes.

The funny video, which was posted to YouTube May 4, suggests that like genital herpes, you can't get rid of Timeline, but you can manage it.

What helps a user manage Timeline? A "once-daily dose of Real Life."

As the video warns, Real Life can produce serious side effects -- like grievous bodily harm and death -- and minor irritations like rug burn, uncomfortable social situations, Internet withdrawal, poking ... and herpes.

The actors perfectly capture the vibe of the original commercial for Valtrex, which is marketed by GlaxoSmithKline.

"At first I didn't know what it was ... it just looked.. different," says one female actor with deadpan concern.

"All my friends had it. I thought I was protected," says another.

As one YouTube commenter suggested, all the video needs is "a couple riding horses on a beach."
