The real Zuckerberg meets the two other "Bergs" at Saturday Night Live.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg surprised everyone when he appeared on Saturday Night Live. He joked around with the actor who played him in the movie ‘The Social Network’, Jesse Eisenberg.

The audience of the program got a triple dose of Zuckerberg as Oscar nominee and guest host Eisenberg stepped into the spotlight to do the opening monologue. He was joined after a few minutes by another “Zukerberg-wannabe,” Andy Samberg. The biggest surprise was the appearance of the man himself, the real Mark Zuckerberg. It surprised Eisenberg so much he looked somewhat “nervous.” Eisenbrg redeemed himself when he asked Zuckerberg if he has seen the movie, the latter answered with, “it’s interesting.” T’was vague but not bad.

Zuckerberg showed up thrice in the show, one in a brief backstage stint with Executive Producer Lorne Michaels; second, the ‘awkward’ first time meet-up of the other two “Zuckerbergs;” and lastly, the obligatory SNL goodbye waltz wherein Mark and Jesse had a seemingly heartfelt hug to show that let bygones be bygones.

Don’t miss out the party, watch the embedded videos after the skip.

In it superficial sense, The Social Network is a story of how Facebook materialized since its inception six years ago. But at its very core, it is a tale of success, failure and trappings of ego and greed.
