While that was a funny line, it wasn’t a joke. He dodged almost every question thrown at him by Matt Lauer.
But, as usual, Mason was entertaining.
He was asked about the $6 billion offer from Google. He launched into a long winded story about being embarrassed about his middle name as a child. Lauer cut him off after a few minutes.
Later Lauer asked him what he wants to do with his “clout” as a hot shot young CEO of the digital world. Mason said, he wants to get more buildings to have the word “laser” in their name.
He then said, I don’t know, I can’t take that seriously, I feel like clout is something that builds up on your teeth.
And that was the end of the interview. Watch it:
