This is neither here nor there but strange enough to note: a screengrab from a Chinese documentary, Chinese Police, which features at exactly 30 seconds in a photobomb from no less than Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg. Mr. Zuckerberg, who reportedly visited Shanghai at the end of March, is shown walking with Ms. Chan behind a pair of grim-faced Chinese cops, looking oddly amused if not downright tickled by the scene in front of him.
The site that originally reported the photobomb (docu-bomb?) translated the subtitle on-screen during Mr. Zuckerberg’s appearance as “Many problems impelled the Chinese police to find way (sic) to increase efficiency.”
More fun still are the comments on Chinasmack.com, which prove the eternally devolving nature of Internet commenters rarely changes, regardless of language or nationality:
- “The head of an illegal foreign website, and they even planted an advertistement for him!”
- “The highest net worth background actor ever.”
- “This is the prelude to Facebook entering China.”
- “This is clearly American imperialists deliberately interfering in our internal affairs.”
If the last quote is true Mr. Zuckerberg may be informing his handlers at the C.I.A. at this very moment that Operation Docu-bomb (Photobomb?) is–so far–a bigger success than Facebook’s IPO.
