Okay, that’s not exactly true, but it might as well be following the release of Facebook’s first ad, which centers on the breakout star of 2012: Chairs. Piggybacking on the nation’s (and Clint Eastwood‘s) newfound obsession with the piece of furniture, the social networking site’s ad delivers a metaphor that’s straight out of a bad high school valedictorian speech: Chairs are like Facebook. Because chairs (especially those that hover inexplicably in the middle of a forest) connect us through various activities. When we sit down, we socialize. Unless, of course, you’ve ever been to a networking event, a college football game, a beer-soaked frat house, or any other social activity outside our couches and office chairs that requires us to stand for hours on end. Facebook, however, does not compute an existence away from the computer. Unlike. Return your butts to Facebook!
