Chairs are like Facebook?

Facebook hits 1 billion users.

And so they decide to come up with an ad. Facebook's very first ad. 

Mark Zuckerburg, probably wanted to tell us that Facebook is a crucial, integral, inseparable part of our existence. So he went on to compare Facebook to chairs. C-H-A-I-R-S???

And not just chairs, Facebook is also like doorbells, airplanes, bridges, dance floors, basketball and finally the universe. 

We sit on chairs, ring doorbells, fly on airplanes, cross over bridges, dance on dance floors, play basketball. 

But how is it connected to Facebook?

Well, what is Facebook? A social networking platform, with 1 billion users around the globe. 

But this commercial has failed to pass the message, and can only be termed as bizarreFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote of the commercial that "for the first time in our history, we've made a brand video to express what our place is on this earth.We believe that the need to open up and connect is what makes us human. It's what brings us together. It's what brings meaning to our lives". What???

Is it just me or do you feel the same?
Here's the ad if you happened to miss it. :)
