The Winklevoss twins will not give up.
Despite winning a settlement worth $200 million (and growing), the duo think they were wronged by Mark Zuckerberg and won’t stop fighting.
Dana Vachon profiles them in a Vanity Fair piece.
The entire article is worth reading, but this one exchange between the twins and a patron of a Mexican bar struck us as particularly poignant.
We drank Coronas at a surfside bar where Tijuanans cheered on Mexico against the U.S. in soccer. The brothers were offering a free guided tour of Mark Zuckerberg’s executive failures when a young local—we’ll call him Felipe—with inky hair at shoulder length, a beer in one hand, a cigarette in the other, introduced himself. He was an aspiring Yosemite park ranger and nodded warmly when asked if he used Facebook. “I find a lot of girls on it,” he said, “a lot of pussy.”
“Are you the twins?” he asked of the identical creatures before him.
“From the movie! Are you for real? Or are you the actors?”
They denied it, absurdly. “Yeah, you’re the fucking twins,” said Felipe, studying their faces, then pulled off his cigarette like a student of smoking in film.
“That’ll kill you,” said Tyler.
“Everything will fucking kill you,” said Felipe.
“Who is your favourite character from The Social Network?” asked Cameron. “Who do you like the best?”
“The No. 1 character is definitely the guy who played them, right?” said the young man, unhelpfully. “He was a baller ’cause he’s a millionaire now—he’s the owner.”
“Do you think that’s the most important thing?”
“He fucked a lot of people up, right?”
“What do you think of the people he fucked up?”
“If I was them?”
“What would you have done?”
“I would fuck him up.”
“If he was in Tijuana, if he was here, what would you do?”
“Man . . . ” Felipe fathomed the dark enormity of his experience. “Here is crazy, Dog.”
“Crazy thought?” misheard Tyler.
“Crazy, Dog,” Cameron corrected him.
“But in a perfect world,” asked Tyler, “how would you fix it?”
“In a perfect world?” said Felipe. “There is no perfect world.”
