The Facebook Follies? ‘Zuckerberg: The Musical’ Invades YouTube

Yes, indeed: Facebook Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg’s initial public offering story is bringing out all the creative juices, with playwrights, singers, piano players, and all walks of performers getting into the spirit.

Take this latest example, which places Zuckerberg on a mock cover of Playbill for his starring role in a playful 12-act show (totaling all of three minutes, tops) called “Zuckerberg: The Musical.”

As told by three female singers clad in black, the “life and times of Mark Zuckerberg” is set to the beat of all your favorite jingle-jangle show tunes, with musical accompaniment tapped out by a spirited pianist.

Oh, and we nearly forgot — there are visuals (big smile).

The 12 acts date back to 2004 and roll through the climactic 2012 IPO. There was no word on rather an act 13 to incorporate Zuckerberg’s marriage to longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan over the weekend was in the works.

Among our favorite lyrics rescribbled:

Now he is a rich man, Markie, Markie has lots of moolah moolah now (set to Fiddler on the Roof‘s “If I Were a Rich Man”).

Bet your bottom dollar you’ll be stalked … on Timeline (Annie‘s “Tomorrow”).

Bravo, gang. Bravo.
