Watch what a jerk you can be wearing Google Glass

Watch what a jerk you can be wearing Google Glass
Take a mall full of festive holiday cheer, throw in funnyman Ed Bassmaster and a pair of Google Glass, and you have a funny video that shows you what the future could be like. And it isn't pretty. Bassmaster walks around, pretending to be talking on his connected specs, but does so loudly enough to confuse or shock the innocent bystanders in the mall.

For example, as Bassmaster approaches a couple of serious looking guys, he loudly asks Google Glass to do a search on diarrhea remedies. He also pretends to be speaking to his mom while confusing a trio of young kids sitting on a mall bench. What is interesting is that when Bassmaster reveals to his targets that he is using Google Glass, everyone seemed to be familiar with the device which has to be good news for Google.

With Google broadening out the Explorer program, and now allowing Explorers to buy a second pair of specs, by this time next year there could be a number of people walking around the malls wearing Google Glass. If you want to see why some are calling those who don a pair of the connected specs "Glassholes," click on the video below.



Thanks, Sunny!

Meh. It gets old fast. Of course, it obviously wouldn't be as funny if he used Glass properly, because it's much harder to trick people when you have to preface every command with, "OK Glass".

This is no different than all the annoying people that run around with bluetooth earpieces while out in public. They'll randomly answer calls and talk loudly when near other - causing the exact same effect.

Google glass is not unique in this regard.

It is unique in some regards. While you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a Bluetooth call on another Bluetooth device compared to Glass, any time you're doing anything else, you start with "OK Glass".

It's a lot less confusing when you hear that than if you just hear someone talking like normal.

The standards of "funny" have really deteriorated in the past few years.
