Watch The Daily Show totally destroy Google Glass users

“Google hates it when you say this, but Google Glass has a major image problem,” Brad Reed reports for BGR.

“People using the headset are routinely thrown out of public places including movie theaters and cafes,” Reed reports, “and the most common question many Glass users get asked by non-Glass wearers is whether they’re secretly filming everyone.”

“In case you needed further proof that there’s a major stigma surrounding Glass,” Reed reports, “then you need to watch a new Daily Show clip in which correspondent Jason Jones absolutely rips into Google Glass users who are complaining that people are being mean to them when they see them wearing a computerized headset on their faces.”

  1. That was f’ing fantastic. I always wonder why people would willingly subject themselves to a Daily Show interview… they HAVE to know they’ll get skewered. But then again, this lot is stupid enough to wear glass…

    1. The trouble with Glassholes is that they just don’t get it. They demonstrate cluelessness the moment they put the device on and remain in that state.

      1. When I first watched this, I assumed the interviewees were actors, and good ones. Now I’m not so sure. Are they genuine glassholes? Nobody could be that nerdy, surely? (Yeah, I know — “They are that nerdy, and don’t call me Shirley”).

        1. Three of them check out from past news stories, and the earnestness of all of them stands out as a genuine kind of cluelessness. They signed release forms but probably were not paid.

  2. You can record people with an iPhone or Android phone too, but at least those aren’t strapped to your forehead ready to hit surreptitiously “record” at a moment’s notice or wink. Glassholes indeed.

  3. “an interface between you and the real world.”
    Seriously? For the love of God, don’t these cretins comprehend what their own senses do?
    That their own bodies are “an interface between you and the real world.”
    I can only hope that wearing these cruddy things renders them so unattractive to the opposite sex that they never get the chance to breed, or get so involved with what’s going on in their internal world that they walk out in front of a truck, bus, train, fall into a river…
    Just think of it as evolution in action.
