The New York Times published a video yesterday titled How Facebook Is Changing Your Internet. The news outlet slipped in a number of references to the Grateful Dead and Phish in the report about the social media platform.
Authored by Jonah M. Kessel and Paul Mozur, the nine-minute explainer video dives into Facebook’s recent activities around the globe. The video features screenshots of Facebook with made-up user names referencing Phish songs such as “Suzy Greenberg,” “Mike Song,” “Brian Roberts,” “Poster Nutbag,” “Walfredo Reyes,” “Dave McGrupp” and others. The band’s Lighting Designer Chris Kuroda makes a cameo too.
The clip also inserts former Grateful Dead LD Candace Brightman and engineer Bob Bralove, along with late Dead keyboardists Brent Mydland, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan” and Vince Welnick. Fellow keys players Jeff Chimenti of Dead & Company, Merl Saunders of Jerry Garcia Band fame and Rob Barraco of Dark Star Orchestra were dropped in as well. Check out the full video below:
