This video from this weekend’s edition of The Soup sums up the trend in a nutshell.

Conan O’Brien stopped by the Google megaplex at part of their @Google series. He takes the stage to the tinny sound of bagpipes before launching into a bit about the silliness of being labeled a “Googler”. Guess he’s on the tech circuit now following his appearance at Twitter and Intel corporate headquarters previously. He says he’s just looking for “free stuff” by way of explaining his recent residency in the Silicon Valley. O’Brien deliciously skewers Google corporate culture too.
