Hilarious and thought-provoking, 'The Man Without a Facebook' faux trailer imagines a world completely dominated by online networking and social media, and wonders if a person could survive socially without a computer. The video is a play on the Mel Gibson film 'The Man Without a Face,' and was created by comedian and writer Dan De Lorenzo. While it may seem like a ridiculous concept now, there's no telling how true this idea will be in the next few years, as the popularity and influence of social networking sites grows every day around the world.

'The Man Without a Facebook' is a hilarious exploration in society's attachment to technology, and the importance given to online networking versus real-life interactions. The bizarre and humorous relationship between the two characters, and the great editing and acting, makes this one parody trailer I'd hate to miss.
