This 'Thank You, Facebook' Video Is the Best Thing to Come Out of the IPO

By Alexis C. Madrigal

I do not think that I can add anything to this video, but I would like to thank its creators, who have brought so much joy to me on this day. "Most of the people in this video have never met face to face," the video maintains. "We are a global family of people committed to inspiring and empowering each other via Facebook."

Don't miss the song's Facebook page, either.

OK, I do have one thing to say about this video. This is a celebrity singalong from our universe in which everyone sort of behaves like a celebrity. It's "We Are the World" multiplied by The Cult of the Amateur and raised to the power of Facebook's opening-day share price.
