Silicon Valley demo parody

by Critical Commons Manager

In the preposterous conclusion of The First 20 Million is Always the Hardest, a Silicon Valley computer genius makes his mark on the world with a utopian technology that delivers interactive content via a cylindrical (actually, distinctly penis-shaped) computer display and holographic gestural interface. The trope of technological unveiling is used to parodic effect when a marching band delivers the prototype devices to shareholders in a corrupt technology company while playing Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra.
