Waiting for Google-o

Any fans of Samuel Beckett will want to check out this little gem on YouTube. It’s strongly reminiscent of the absurdity of Waiting for Godot:

Estragon: I can’t go on like this.
Vladimir: That’s what you think.

The premise is that Charlie Rose is interviewing Charlie Rose about technology. (And its absurdities.)

Via Very Short List, which has this to say about their favourite moment: “One Charlie successfully unnerves the other with a simple “Steve is not happy” — hands-down the most portentously sinister non sequitur since “What’s the frequency, Kenneth?””. Humor-blogs.com has recently been in non sequitur mode too, but it seems better now.

  1. I love Sam Beckett…
    Are you trying to say that video was the result of a Quantum Leap?
    That woulda made a good episode.

  2. I don’t know, I wouldn’t trust that Dean Stockwell cyborg at all. m.
