This hilarious Nico Muhly 'Two Boys' Opera ad brings Facebook and Twitter to life as unsuspecting pedestrians are asked whether they want to "like" or be "friends" with an actor. Most are simply dazed and confused while viewers are given a chance to see just how ridiculous the online world can be at times.

One of the most awkward moments in the video involves the actor following unsuspecting individuals after asking whether or not they have Twitter. Unbeknownst to them, when the actor asks whether he can "follow" them, he means it in the literal sense. This Nico Muhly 'Two Boys' Opera ad is both clever and revealing, as it demonstrates just how the online world doesn't really translate to real life.
